Welcome (back) to inQvation's new HUBS Community Manager, Christina Stentebjerg.
In early December, we welcomed Christina back to the hub. For the past year she has been on maternity leave but has now returned in a new position as inQvation’s HUBS Community Manager. It is a great pleasure to have Christina and her always happy face back in our team of inQvators.
#1: Hi Christina. You are a familiar face in inQvation since you’ve been our Event and Project Manager. For those who don’t know you, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’ve been a part of the inQvation family since the Summer of 2017 – before the HUB was created. As Event and Project Manager, I was working on how to create and maintain an engaging environment through various events in inQvation. That meant organizing professional events and social happenings to facilitate both learning and knowledge sharing – and of course, a warm and fun culture. I also organized external events for the tech startup community to create awareness about inQvation.
I live in Copenhagen with my boyfriend, Carsten, his daughter, Sofie, and our daughter, Emma. For the past year, I’ve been on maternity leave with Emma.
#2: Congrats with your new title as ‘HUBS Community Manager’. What’s that about?
Thank you! My focus is still on creating and sustaining an engaging community with networks across the HUB, knowledge sharing, and the opportunity for mutual inspiration. As HUBS Community Manager, I will work with the overall strategy for inQvation HUBS, partnerships, internal and external events and of course how we can continue to improve the experience for our wonderful residents.
#3: What do you do when you’re “out of office”?
I spend a lot of time with my family. Especially with two kids in the house, there is a lot of playing around and walks to the park. I see my friends as much as possible, having dinners, going to concerts or enjoying a good movie or TV-show. I like to run in the nearby park, and my goal is to complete the Copenhagen Marathon in May. When possible, I love traveling to new places to explore different cultures.
Christina will be working on creating and sustaining an engaging community in inQvation's HUB.
#4: Earlier, you lived in Milan for four years. What did you do there? And hey – do you speak Italian?
I came to Livigno on an internship during my Bachelor at Copenhagen Business School and moved to Milan shortly after. Here I worked while writing my Bachelor thesis. I decided to stay and continued my studies at Universita Bocconi, where I became Master of Science in Economics and Management in Arts, Culture, Media and Entertainment in December 2011. I returned to Copenhagen after having spent four great years in Italy. I spoke Italian fluently, but (unfortunately) I haven’t used the language much since I came back to Denmark. Therefore, it’s a bit rusty. But I still have no problem speaking and understanding Italian and love every chance I get.
#5: What do you look the most forward to in your new role?
Oh, so many things!
I look forward to rejoining the inQvation family and to meet all of our lovely residents. Both those I already know and those who have joined us during the last year. There is so much creativity and amazing projects here, and it is fun to facilitate knowledge sharing and learning in such an exciting environment.
