If you love knowledge, set it free!

Robin Teigland (Ph.D.) is Professor in Management of Digitalization in the Entrepreneurship and Strategy Division at TME. She is also Professor of Business Administration, with a specialization in Strategic Information Systems Management, and Co-director of the Center for Strategy and Competitiveness at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE). In 2017 and 2018 Robin was listed by the Swedish business magazine, Veckans Affärer, as one of Sweden’s most influential women, primarily in technology (#12 in 2017 and #6 in 2018).

As part of her current activities, Robin co-leads the Peniche Ocean Watch Initiative in Peniche, Portugal. The Peniche Ocean Watch Initiative (POW) aspires to enable a blue circular economy and global best practice in tackling ocean waste and regional rejuvenation through joining forces with local efforts in the coastal areas of Peniche and facilitating knowledge sharing and creativity in ocean-based industry and digitalization. More information is on Facebook and on Slideshare.

Robin's lecturing and research interests reside at the intersection of strategy, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship and include the following:
• Digital innovation networks and the creation and diffusion of knowledge through internet-enabled communities and networks, e.g., open source software communities, digital entrepreneurial ecosystems
• Digitalization and the influence of the convergence of disruptive technologies, e.g., artificial intelligence, IoT, smart robots, blockchains, 3D printing, virtual reality, gene editing, on the future of the firm, labor and value creation in society
• Social impact through digitally-enabled circular economies, particularly in coastal areas
• The new industrial revolution and the future of the Swedish welfare state and the nation state

While at SSE Robin sat on SSE’s Board of Directors from May 2017 to October 2018, and she was the Program Director of SSE's PhD Program in Business Administration 2010 to 2015. Outside of SSE, Robin is a Fellow of the KIN Center for Digital Innovation at the VU University in Amsterdam and a member of the Singularity University Portugal Faculty.

Robin has published numerous books, articles in international books and academic journals, and industry reports (see links to right). Her most recent book is The Rise and Development of FinTech: Accounts of Disruption from Sweden and Beyond and is available for download through open access at Routledge Publishing. Robin is often interviewed on Swedish national TV and radio, and her research is frequently mentioned in Swedish and international media. For example, her most recent report, The Substitution of Labor – From technological feasibility to other factors influencing the potential of job automation, was featured in Forbes in February 2018. She is a sought after global speaker, having spoken for multinationals such as Microsoft, Google, H&M, and Volkswagen, and for Sweden’s government ministries, such as the Ministry of Finance, and other organizations, such as the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce (www.robinteigland.com). She is also active and influential among social media users, with over 300,000 views on Slideshare (www.slideshare.net/eteigland) and 2700 followers on Twitter (@RobinTeigland). Due to her interest in the "bigger picture" of the impact of the internet on society, her research was highlighted in the mini-film featured on TechCrunch: "The Networked Society". Additionally, she has been listed as one of the Global Top 50 Business Professors on Twitter (@robinteigland), and in 2008 she received the “Researcher of the Year” award at the Stockholm School of Economics.

In addition to her research, Robin is an Expert Reviewer for funding organizations such as VINNOVA - Sweden’s Innovation Agency, the UK’s Economic & Social Research Council, and the Swiss National Science Foundation.

On a personal note, Robin is from the USA and grew up in Nashville, Tennessee (but she does not sing :-) ). She holds a B.A. in Economics with Distinction from Stanford University, an MBA from the Wharton School, an MA in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, and a PhD in Business Administration from the Stockholm School of Economics. She also has a range of work experience, such as venture capital in Silicon Valley, consulting for McKinsey & Co. in Sweden and Spain, an entrepreneur in Norway, production operations for Esso in Chile, stock brokerage in Spain, and international banking in USA. In her free time, she enjoys learning from her five children as well surfing longboard waves and co-running her Ocean Tech Hub coworking/coliving space and Go4Surf surf school in Peniche, Portugal.
