Laura - Founder

Nordic House is the passion project of Laura Lykkegaard - the Danish Capetonian who moved to the tip of Africa in 1993 to start a small advertising paper. She (like everyone who visits Cape Town) fell in love with the place and its people and decided to stay. Over the years, she has helped numerous Nordic businesses, big and small, to set up in this beautiful part of the world, such as H&M, Europæiske Rejseforsikring/Euro-Center, assisting design- and energy companies, and many more. She has become the go-to person for every Nordic business/person/official that needs the know-how on South African business.
Laura has been serving as a Copenhagen Goodwill Ambassador for more than 20 years and is also a Global Partner at BLOXHUB (the largest urban development network in the world).
She converses in three of the Nordic languages and is known to have the most extensive and valuable Nordic network in Southern Africa.
