Although clinical psychology was always Gaute's master plan, serendipity took him on a detour. A forced break in his education gave him some extra time that he spent on co-founding Funcom, Norway's largest and most successful gaming company. The companyrapidly grew, resulting in an IPO in 2005.
After 15 years as a game developer, director and CEO, Gaute took a step down to finish his degree in psychology. Today, Gaute is a Clinical Psychologist at Edwin Ruuds Hospital.
Not only has Gaute an impressive track record as an entrepreneur, he has a lot of experience working at the intersection of art and technology, and a deep understanding of the human mind and the entrepreneurial mindset.
