Joakim Hjønnevåg is a versatile 22-year-old Norwegian entrepreneur. His journey began at age 11 when he won a car, sold it, and later invested the proceeds in Bitcoin. This early investment ignited his passion for digital assets, leading him to join the US-based FinTech firm aXpire at age 17 as a consultant. Still in high school, he helped raise $20M for the company in a crowd raise that sold out in under 89 hours. By age 20, Joakim was promoted to Group Vice President of Business Development for the wider LSG/aXpire Group, reporting to the CEO. This made him the youngest executive in the company group’s two-decade history. His multi-national teams delivered BPO and enterprise software solutions to Fortune 500s such as Coca-Cola, generating 8-figures in annual client savings.
Simultaneously, Joakim co-founded UK-based property law firm ProConveyancing as a new addition to the company group. He spearheaded business development efforts for the law firm, achieving 7-figures in revenue just over a year after the firm received its law license. Since late 2022, Joakim has focused on angel investing and his consultancy practice. He offers extensive expertise accrued from over 6 years of experience in digital assets, digital collectibles and decentralized finance. His expertise has been sought by a diverse set of clients, including Grammy and Emmy award-winning creatives, billion dollar funds and renowned brands. As a climate advocate and conscientious investor, Joakim supports and invests in companies driving global impact. He aims to empower businesses catalyzing positive change across industries and communities, with the goal of promoting a more sustainable, equitable and just society.
