At Klarna, we now have over 80 nationalities, with over 55 in our Stockholm HQ alone. I am amazed that we have somehow managed to attract such talented people from across the globe to this small city in the north with dark winters. Most of our employees have moved for their job and if the culture is not open or enabling people to speak their voice and feel like they can make an impact, diversity does not matter alone, if it’s simply not inclusive and people will not stay or thrive. To scale and stay competitive in the tech industry, we benefit massively from experiences of people from many different types of backgrounds in building solutions. Diversity of thinking and experience fuels innovation and drives market growth. To put it simply, diverse teams create better products and solutions.
By investing outside of the homogeneous networks of traditional venture capital we believe we can make great return and also drive change in society. The key to diversity is giving more entrepreneurs the right keys to grow their companies because it will create new employers, role models and owners.
Our users are at the core of everything we do, and we’ve hired a diverse team to reflect our growing customer base.
