Tor Rauden Källstigen
Leader and company builder. Product maker where technology and culture intersect.
Proven track record of successfully turning inventive ideas into revenue generating growth businesses. Experience in taking ventures from the early stages to product-market fit, and then scaling them through effective market, sales, and marketing strategies.
My expertise includes organization and management, primarily in B2B SaaS and B2C. I have raised over around 100 millon sek in venture capital over multiple rounds, both in strong markets — as well as during more challenging financial times.
Board experience from both the tech and civil society sectors.
Some things I'm passionate about are media, podcasting, audio, generative AI, mobility, insights, analytics, supporting founders — and of course international relations.
As I'm currently figuring out what's the next big thing — don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss.

As the founder and former CEO of All Ears, a world leader in spoken media monitoring and insights, I successfully led the company for its first six years. With close to 1,000 customers, many of them Fortune 500's, All Ears has achieved an annual recurring revenue of €4 million. I was instrumental in raising €7 million in investment through various rounds, including the Series A.
I personally closed the company's first customers and initiated our expansion into the US, securing major clients such as Walmart and Weber Shandwick.
Through my efforts, I built a strong sales, product, and customer success team, recruiting hundreds of individuals in total. All Ears has also attracted investments from Alfvén & Didrikson and Bonnier Ventures, as well as prominent angel investors with backgrounds at Spotify and Cision.

Forerunner in the mobile photo sharing space, quite similar to the loop based format that Vine and Tiktok later popularized. Loopcam was monetized using creative/ad partnerships with international B2C brands. The app was run from Berlin and got investments from the Soundcloud founders.
