Hanken student William von der Pahlen awarded this year's Anders Wall scholarship

This year’s Anders Wall scholarship is awarded to Hanken student William von der Pahlen. The scholarship of 125 000 SEK is the biggest one awarded to a student at Hanken. The award ceremony will take place later today in Stockholm.

In addition to his studies at Hanken, William is a serial entrepreneur who has william-1.jpgcontributed to the public opinion through the podcast #futucast. He now has a global podcast “The Impossible Show” in the making. The new podcast will feature successful people from all over the world and a few big names have already committed to the project. On top of his podcast projects, William is currently mostly engaged in developing his companies within Indagatus Group. Indagatus Group consists of Indagatus and Helsinki Concierge.

William has enormous potential and is a role model to other young entrepreneurs both at Hanken and nationally.

-It’s a great honour to be awarded this scholarship. I wanted to become a member of the Wallumninetwork since the day I first heard about it. To me it’s yet another proof of being on the right track as an entrepreneur, says William. I will use the scholarship to launch the new podcast The Impossible Show, in which we interview the world’s most successful people.

The Anders Wall Foundation annually awards 2 MSEK in scholarships to young entrepreneurial talents in the fields of research, young entrepreneurship, international studies, and culture. The Anders Wall Foundation brings together a large group of young people interested in entrepreneurship and introduces them to the alumni network, Wallumni, that arranges regular meetings for its members.
