Gun and Einar Larsson Scholarship 2019
Natalie Wild and Jakob Nordfeldt, students at Stockholm School of Economics, have been awarded the Gun & Einar Larsson Scholarship 2019 (GELS) for their projects
"Cryptocurrencies in Venezuela" and "Outsourcing Ourselves".
The president of the Stockholm School of Economics, Lars Strannegård, who appointed the scholars, acknowledges that:
Natalie Wild and Jakob Nordfeldt have developed two creative projects that address interesting topics related to today's societies. They have further shown deep interest and strong commitment to overcoming challenges involved in their project.
The Gun and Einar Larsson Scholarship offers outstanding students at Stockholm School of Economics the opportunity to create and realize innovative projects abroad according to their own design. The aim of the scholarship is to offer experience and personal development outside of the academic realm that benefits the student’s education and professional aspirations.
Natalie Wild, Cryptocurrencies in Venezuela
The goal of this project is to develop a strategy for implementing widespread use of cryptocurrencies in non-functioning economies to take advantage of the underlying technology in an appropriate manner.
Jakob Nordfeldt, Outsourcing Ourselves
The project is to produce a short (less than 20 minutes) documentary about the virtual transformation of consumption to inspire discussion, awareness and action about its implications. Filming will be done in California in connection to the headquarters of Google, Apple and some minor voice technology companies.
