This is the story with background of the GoFundMe campaign #helplars get a new computer. 

I am one of the co-founders for the Nordic Impact Week who are organizing the Nordic Impact Week for the
4th year.  We bring Nordic Entrepreneurs to San Francisco and Silicon Valley for business and Inspiration.

Unfortunaly and sadly during the weeklong program's visit at Stanford this week, we had a burglary in our Van parked at public parking at Stanford.

We had witness who could give the police and sheriff details about the possible burglars. They had managed to break in through the sidedoor window and get the door up and then empty the van.

They stole my backpack out of the van with my new MacBook Pro 15 inch, my passport, all converters, cables, yes everything. The computer was Brand new with a value of close to $5000, I am asking for help here to a lower value to hopefully get a computer since I have to stay to get a new passport and a few more meetings. 

This is a photo taken by the group of Nordic Entrepreneurs of the crime scene. 

Without the computer I am totally naked, unfortunately I am in between moving house and are short on insurance which makes it worse.

Luckily we had our Nordic Impact Week media team with us and they document this story, here

The video shows when the police and sheriff was at the scene, and at the same time we was called up for an interview with DrFUTURE radioshow and this session is maybe a new tv-reality series. Listen to this. 

So everyone now have recommended me to use the platform GoFundMe and ask for help. 

For Swedish supporters you can use Swish as well on number +46 72 740 66 06

For Companies or organisations who want to help I can offer visibility and recognition in various channels and media with stories and messages, blogposts. Example is Nordic Impact Week web with channels, and more. 

With gratitude, love and a thank you in advance, I am appreciating every possible help. I am staying here in the states until I get a new passport, and hopefully this campaign work, get a new computer.
