Sissel Hansen is the founder of the book series Startup Guide, often described as the Lonely Planet for entrepreneurs, and Startup Everywhere, a global platform for entrepreneurs. She created her first startup business when she was 17 years old. It failed, and in 2012 she moved to Berlin, wondering how to avoid making the same entrepreneurial mistakes and how to gather the information she needed to create a successful business in a new city. Over the next two years, she launched several small businesses to help provide knowledge and inspiration to young entrepreneurs. This was the seed of the Startup Guide, a guide to the local startup scene. The Startup Guide is now in 17 cities, with 10 more in the works. In 2015, she was nominated as a Female Entrepreneur of the Year and named one of the 100 most aspiring talents and young leaders in Denmark. In 2017 The Nordic Web identified her as one of the most influential and impactful individuals in the Nordic technology scene.
