During two days, Nov 2-3, the Gothenburg office unleashed some of their “super powers” at GADDEN, which is one of Northern Europe’s largest career fairs for business-, law-, logistics- and environmental science students. A big congratulations to the GADDEN committee and Gothenburg University’s School of Business, Economics and Law who really succeed to organize a top class arrangement where student could meet company representatives and start building relationships with potential future employers and vice versa.
For some of CellMark’s employees this was the first time they run a stand at this type of student fair and it was just as exciting for them as for the students. In the stand, the student could participate in a competition where they could win a lunch meeting with CellMark’s CEO. They could also sign up for a business case evening at our Gothenburg office, exchange experiences with our colleagues and learn more about the PaperSeed Foundation.
Thank you for your support to PaperSeed
Inspired by this year’s GADDEN theme “Unleash your Superpowers” we wanted to meet the events ambition to clarify its responsibility to improve the sustainability of the fair so instead of handing out giveaways to the students they picked up a $2-worth recyclable cardboard coin that they helped us put in a PaperSeed collection box. In connection with this event CellMark donated USD 1000 to PaperSeed.
When we now summarize our impressions we can see that it was a great success – we got 140 potential entrepreneurs interested in our company and the PaperSeed Foundation. Within the next couple of weeks, a few lucky student will get the opportunity to meet our CEO, Fredrik Anderson during a lunch and learn more about what is going on at CellMark. The planning of CellMark’s business case evening end January has already begun. This will be a great opportunity for student to learn more about our global meeting place and for CellMark people to connect to students and build valuable relationships. We are very excited to arrange this business case event and look forward to this evening.
It was great meeting you at GADDEN
Finally, we wish to thank all participant who we have met during the GADDEN career fair. We had a great time, meeting you and discussing your future career! Altogether it was an enriching way to get inspired by next generation of entrepreneurs and hopefully we manage to attract more talented people to our family of entrepreneurs.

FIPP Asia Pacific were held on Sept. 27-28 in Singapore, an event that brings together expert speakers, delegates and exhibitors (Asia-Pacific and international) and offers the chance to engage in the exciting opportunities now opening up in the region. FIPP is a network for global media. The network represents content-rich companies or individuals involved in the creation, publishing or sharing of quality content.
Holmen Paper AB had a stand in the conference and invited CellMark Paper’s Diana Qiu to participate in the conference and presented CellMark to the audience. Diana reflects on the event: “Our presentation was short but unique, since all the other speakers were all talking about media, especially digital media, while we were talking about paper and print media. So, the natural question to ask oneself in this context would be: Were we odd to the audience? And the answer was: No! I saw great interest there. During the breaks, there were many participants visiting our stand and showed great interest in Paper.”
In early 2010s, the general saying among media strategists were to manage print for profit and digital for growth and many magazines went digital. The mobile shift made magazines begin to explore methods of distributing content other than print and apps and videos were created as the social media pages achieved many likes and the engagement grew.
Diana continues with a quote of a few sentence from an article she just read: “With the advent of the digital age, many magazines have been moving away from print capitalizing on the sharing power of social media platforms for success among a new generation of readers. But the truth is, people love print as much as the generations that preceeded them.”
Digital media may be even bigger in the future, but we see that paper and print is still popular today. Diana’s take away from FIPP Asia Pacific is that digital media will not kill print & paper. People have always discovered new ways for storytelling and adapt to what is the unique needs of their own business. Print on paper and digital play different roles in the way they interact with the reader. Companies now establish a multi-platform approach in order to reach and move their audience. Diana ends with:
“I believe paper have bright future and combined with other media, print will continue to attract and engage people.”
