Carl Christensen

Co-founder & CTO of Spacemaker

Carl is Co-founder and CTO of Spacemaker. He holds M.Sc. degrees in both Computer Science and Business, and has 15 years of experience in digital innovation and product development. 

He served as a member of the board and of the leadership team at Bekk Consulting AS, where he worked for more than 10 years and where he was in charge of 300+ consultants delivering software products to a multitude of large corporations in the Nordics. 

About 3 years ago, he left consulting to pursue a crazy idea with the potential to deeply disrupt the way we build cities all over the world. As the CTO of Spacemaker, Carl has built an agile and cross-functional product organization of currently 75 people to deliver a game-changing AI technology that helps users discover smarter ways to maximize the potential of a building site. Given that Spacemaker operates in a greenfield, this includes a research squad of eight people based in Boston, close to MIT. 

A mediocre but enthusiastic golfer, Carl lives in Oslo with his wife and two small children. True to his Nordic roots, he used to compete in alpine skiing, and still holds a lot of love for the sport. And when he is not busy (which is admittedly rare these days), Carl can be seen following his passion for food and food culture.
