Who are the founders and co-founders of the company?
The company was founded by Charles Kuhlman. I’m the sole founder.
A complete journey about the company? When you have started, how and where?
My entrepreneurial journey commenced in 2008, rooted in the media and publishing sector. It all began with the creation of a high-end magazine, LXRY, which ultimately led to a successful sale to a prominent Nordic publishing house in 2010.
Following this initial venture, I ventured into a series of diverse businesses. I initiated a protein ice cream enterprise that reached an exit point in 2016. Simultaneously, I introduced an organic smoothie product line tailored for children, which not only flourished but also expanded its presence across four different countries.
In the quest for innovation, I also established a plant-based protein shake-on-the-go venture, successfully concluding a sale in 2021. However, it’s important to note that my entrepreneurial journey has been a rollercoaster of experiences, encompassing both triumphs and challenges.
One such challenge surfaced in 2017, when the organic smoothie business, Muuti, expanded at an accelerated pace, ultimately leading to bankruptcy due to various circumstances. To navigate these difficulties, I made the strategic decision to sell Muuti to the manufacturer, securing a lifeline for the journey ahead.
Fast forward to the present, in the past year, I founded KoolKollekt, an enterprise that has rapidly emerged as one of the most dynamic and fast-growing startups in the Middle East. Through this extensive journey, I’ve gathered invaluable experience and insights, harnessing each experience, both favorable and challenging, to fuel my ongoing commitment to entrepreneurial success.
