Founder & CEO of Simplero
Lars' work as founder and owner of Collaboraid has shown both a deep dedication to the values of the open source community AND an ability to make money of it. A client list like MIT, Heidelberg University and Greenpeace speaks for itself.
In my experience working directly with Lars, he is more productive than three people - yet at the same time can turn out innovative and insightful strategy. And he never loses focus on the customer and the community.
Lars did amazing work on the UI framework Bebop.
Lars is one of the best software developers that I know. He thinks about software from a different angle than most software developers, from the user's perspective.
I've had the privilege of being coached by Lars a couple of times. Lars helped me realise my dreams, made me see new possibilities and helped me make realistic plans to accomplish what I've dreamed of. Lars helped me with anything from career-advice to bad habits, and I highly recommend Lars Pind as a coach, no matter the subject.
Lars has given me coaching on a couple of topics and done so very well. I have left each session feeling inspired and full of direction and mental fuel. I highly recommend hiring Lars as a coach on any project.
Lars has done a great job building PublicSquare at Cucina. PublicSquare has shown to be the best solution for many of the problems current media are experiencing. Furthermore he's a smart and happy guy, very approachable!
