Jakob Ohlsson is a consultant with an unusual CV. As a self-taught activist-turned-entrepreneur he founded Reform Act – the first agency in Scandinavia focusing exclusively on political campaigns.
As Scandinavia’s leading innovator in political campaigns, Jakob has had the role of introducing modern campaign tactics and technology in a political environment that lags 5, perhaps 10 years behind the American political space. Working mostly in Scandinavian countries, but with clients in other Western European countries as well, Jakob has focused on the digital side of grassroots driven campaigns and trying to fuse digital with field.
Jakob was head of Studio 68, the Swedish Social Democratic Party’s secret in-house agency; his responsibility was to scale modern american campaign tactics to a country of 10 million people with different culture and legal framework.
Jakob has won multiple Reed Awards and Pollie Awards for his work.
