PHD PORTRAITS: HENRIK JOHN ANDERSEN, CEO AND SALES MANAGER AT INROPA

I think it was really interesting to do a PhD. You have the chance to concentrate on one specific topic and thing at a time, and simultaneously you are able to teach and develop others. Back then, my biggest concern was if I would become too specialized when I had finished my PhD. Later on, I found out that it is almost impossible to become too specialized.

 

HOW CLOSE IS YOUR CURRENT CAREER TO THE IDEAS AND DREAMS YOU HAD AS A PHD FELLOW?
That is a very tough question. Actually, I don’t really know what I imagined at that point. I just thought that the technology was exciting to work with, which I still think today.

I have always had a dream about becoming self-employed, but did not really think about how demanding it is. As an engineer, I did not think about that I had to do both sales, management, financial management and so on. Many of these tasks I could go without, but the contact with customers and selling our solutions to them I really enjoy.
