About Kristina Lindhe Mentorship

An entrepreneur with long, solid experience, CEO, creative director and founder of Lexington Company, Kristina Lindhe, has always had a strong commitment to young women and gender equality within the business world.

For the second year in a row, the entrepreneur, together with Lexington Company, continues to promote and support women through the Kristina Lindhe Mentorship. The application opens March 8, 2022.

“There have always been driven women with great business ideas out there, now perhaps more than ever, and that's why it’s so important to inspire and encourage women to think bigger, take action and dare to invest,” Kristina says.  “That’s why I’m taking the opportunity to support some of these women through a mentorship program. Believing in yourself and your idea can sometimes be a real challenge, so tips and advice from a person with similar experience can be worth its weight in gold. It’s something I wanted for myself when I started.”
