Christian Arnstedt and Denis Fedoryaev in Forbes 30 Under 30

Denis Fedoryaev and Christian Arnstedt, founders of Blazar Capital, have won the prestigious 30 Under 30 award by Forbes Magazine. The prize is given to the 30 business leaders in Europe under 30 years of age who have achieved the most remarkable results. Among earlier winners of the prize are Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel.

The prize has been given to Denis and Christian based on the unique model they have created at Blazar Capital and previously being the two youngest Junior Partners in McKinsey in Europe.

Blazar Capital takes operational leadership in companies that they found in-house or invest in at a very early stage. All companies in the first Blazar portfolio are e-commerce oriented which has given Blazar a unique understanding and positioning in the vertical e-commerce market.

We are fascinated about winning the prize from Forbes, the world’s leading business media; however, an even more exciting piece of news is that the first Blazar company, Nordgreen, is live on Kickstarter, a pre-launch platform, and has already sold for 1 million DKK in the first 2.5 weeks since launch. Nordgreen is a watch brand with all its products designed by the Danish world-famous designer Jakob Wagner.

Blazar Capital is currently conducting a funding round for follow-up investment in its existing companies and seed investment in new companies to be launched. If you are interested in investing, you can use the investor submission form here.
