Sonja holds a Master of Science in Machine Learning from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. In parallel, she studied Business Management at Stockholm University to explore how she could merge her technical skills and business interest, while gaining professional experience at Klarna, Microsoft and more. Her passion for bridging the gap between cutting edge machine learning and business applications drove her to complete her master thesis delving into deep learning models as decision support in venture capital investments at EQT Ventures, while interning in the analytics team. As a data scientist at EQT Ventures, Sonja works closely with the Motherbrain team on how to boost decision making by applying analytics and artificial intelligence, while constantly being on the lookout for new alternative data.Sonja finds it exciting contributing to EQT Ventures’ wider mission sourcing hidden gems no one else has spotted yet, paving the way to a different type of fund leveraging data to find the best tech-startups ready for investment. Outside of work, Sonja enjoys travelling, hanging out in the Stockholm archipelago and spending time with friends and family.
