Born and raised in Sweden, the son of Cambodian immigrant blue-collar factory workers, van Huynh was the first in his family to attend high school or university.
If it hadn’t been for Swedish entrepreneur Fredrik van Huynh’s ambitious parents, he might never have found one of the market leaders, Absolute Internship, a multimillion-dollar company that has placed 2000 student interns with blue chip companies all over the world.
Frequently covered by The New York Times, Bloomberg Businessweek and BBC News as a career expert, van Huynh is recognized as one of Sweden’s top entrepreneurs under 30, having built a successful business from the ground up.
The dynamic young Swede has his own philosophies for business success; ‘Be 24/7; business never sleeps’, and ‘Treat everyone with respect; every contact knows another contact’.
In 2015 he was recognised as Entrepreneur of the year by World Finance.
