About Evelina

 

Evelina Lundqvist is an award winning serial social entrepreneur. Or as she likes to put it - an investor of time and awesomeness.

Evelina loves creating exciting solutions at the intersection of sustainability and creativity. She works together with clients, as well as on her own initiatives. She invests her time, experience, network and mojo into brave ventures with a clear triple bottom line ambition - social, environmental and financial impact.

Evelina was smitten by the empowering feeling of making stuff happen at a young age. Evelina remembers running her first project when she was five years old. A circus performance in her parents' kitchen involving her sister, grandfather and great grandmother. Since back then, through her school years and professional life, Evelina has been involved in numerous ventures. 

After high-school Evelina was headhunted to set up an initiative engaging more young women as active producers of digital media. This was the starting point for the SIP Network, a group of organisations supporting young people to realise their ideas, that Evelina played a key role in founding, 2001-2007. In 2007 Evelina moved to Austria, with her later-to-be-husband and began working for a fashion start-up.

In 2009 Evelina and Gayathri Rathinavelu started the sustainability and creativity agency The Good Tribe together. This was the starting point of an intense period in Evelina's life. Traveling back and forth between Sweden and Austria, working with clients, as well as own initiatives and simultaneously doing an MBA, majoring in Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility. Evelina married her husband, Rupert Pessl in 2011 and they are expecting their first child late 2016.
