Our roots.

Our roots.

It all began in Sweden in 2008, when IOWN’s ultimate predecessor Svenska Vindbolaget AB, was founded by Hans-Christian Schulze and Richard Larsson. They had a simple goal: to develop wind projects better than anyone else.

They achieved their goal by securing exclusivity for nearly 700 potential turbine locations in Sweden in three years. The key to their success was seizing opportunities without the fear of failing.

In 2011, they sold their company and helped the new owner become one of the largest wind developers in the Nordics and become publicly traded, largely due to the original 700 turbine locations. Today, the legacy lives at the core of IOWN.
