Joel Rikardsson, from our Class of 2022, today is Head of Operations at Rubato, a dynamic fashion startup.
His entrepreneurial journey began with a twist of fate when he ventured into the fashion industry, only to face unexpected setbacks. Undeterred, he pivoted and seized an opportunity at Rubato, a company that had been a source of inspiration during his entrepreneurial endeavors. He initially joined to explore the inner workings of a growing startup but soon became integral to its success.
As an analytical thinker, Joel excelled in operations, refining processes, managing product delivery , and enhancing customer support. Over time, he naturally assumed the role of Head of Operations, steering the ship through challenges.
Joel's path from our Master's program to his current leadership position at Rubato is a testament to the transformative power of education and the entrepreneurial spirit.
"Success in entrepreneurship is not about avoiding failure; it's about learning from it, growing stronger, and embracing the beautiful journey of building something meaningful. Fail fast, fail cheap, and fail often," said Joel.
