Magnus Wilhelmsson, founder of Nordic Wellness was awarded as Founder of the Year by H.R.H Prince Daniel at the Founders Awards Gala, Stockholm City Hall on September 16, 2021.

The jury for Founders Awards consists of large scale founders acting as jury for the award Founder of the Year. 

Jury Motivation for Magnus Wilhelmsson
”This has been the most difficult choice at all times for this jury. We have two fantastic winners – one classic entrepreneur and one who stands for something radically different in organizational thinking. Our gold winner has, without external capital, fought against private equity backed competitors and taken a leading position in the Swedish market. He started on his own and has a billion crowns business that he still owns 100 % of Nordic Wellness. He is living his company, takes massive risks and has done so for nearly 25 years.”
