Charlotte Danielsson has many years of experience working as an Attorney in Silicon Valley working with
tech companies from all over the US and the world. No doubt she will be a great asset to SACC
Texas and the Dallas board.
Tell us a bit about yourself?
I’ve been an attorney in Silicon Valley working with tech companies from all over the US and the world for over 22 years doing corporate and immigration work via my law firm Infiniti Law (www.infinitilaw.com). I received my doctorate in law from Stanford and my bachelors in Economics and Political Science from Berkeley. As a Swedish immigrant, I’ve maintained strong ties to the Nordics through nonprofit work and was the Chairwoman of SACC SF/SV before running Silicon Vikings as it’s CEO for 5 1/2 years. Over the past year, I’ve spent a lot of time in DFW and am preparing to open a branch of my law firm here in Q1 2021. My husband Henry and I met when we were 15 and we are now enjoying our empty nest years! Our son Andrew works for Nissan at their Innovation Lab in Silicon Valley doing startup scouting, and our daughter Brittany is a 4th grade teacher at a charter school in Dallas where 90 percent of the kids are economically disadvantaged.
What do you hope to achieve as board member in SACC Dallas?
Tech in DFW isn’t as well known in other parts of the US or internationally as it should be unfortunately, and my goal is to help change that. In my first year at SACC Dallas, I organized an event for Global Entrepreneurship Week Fort Worth, highlighting the experiences of Nordic Founders in DFW. I also brought the global competition Startup World Cup to Dallas for the first time.
With covid-19 and everything – how did you spend your summer this year?
Climbing the walls like most people primarily but I also was able to spend about a month in Mesquite helping my daughter renovate the 1968 house she bought that was stuck in a time warp. There’s nothing better than power tools and hard labor to get your mind off of all of the craziness of 2020!
