14. Robert Moldén
26, Sweden, Founder & CEO, Nema Problema Foundation
Young and driven, 26-year-old Robert Moldén is the one of the dynamic forces behind the Nema Problema Foundation non-profit established in 2014.
The organization aims to harness the idealism and commitment of its seven founding members to bring about societal change. Its infectious principle of service in countries such as Ghana and Ukraine, has helped the NGO amass a growing corps of volunteers eager to make a difference. The organization has also collaborated with Moldén’s home municipality of Lindigö to help migrants integrate by encouraging local business leaders to recognize their potential and help create employment opportunities for them.
Providing support for arrivals keen on entrepreneurship is also part of the group’s integration program. Part of the financing for the NGO’s operations comes from a car dealership that Moldén set up in 2010, when he was just 19 years old. In recognition of the young social entrepreneur’s efforts, the city of Stockholm named him Entrepreneur of the Year 2017.
