Welcome to Intendor!
Founder and managing director of Intendor
Creating successful products is hard.
In today’s merciless copycat economy, there are hundreds of imitators for every innovator and the prices are always under pressure.
You must continually innovate and offer new, clearly unique and more valuable products to the market. This has proven to be the only sustainable road to long- term prosperity and survival.
Hello, I’m Mats Karlsson, founder and managing director of Intendor.
I have been creating products all my life. It probably started with being amazed by the big tractors on the farm next door as a young boy. Having a father that was a very gifted engineer and inventor certainly helped too! Today, I have more than 30 years of experience in innovation and a long line of successful products to look back at.
Over the years, I have helped many companies become more successful by defining their competitive strategies and products, driving the design and development efforts and formulating the critical market introduction process.
I can help your company too!
Using my market knowledge, technical expertise, contacts and experience, I can make sure that your future products are relevant, exciting and valuable.
My focus is on visual technologies. LED-based lighting and display products in particular but I also have an understanding of audio-visual technologies in general.
Contact me for a creative discussion about how I can help your company become more competitive, successful and profitable.
