Amalie is the founder of coworking space and creative center Factory Tøyen, and the managing director of RGN Property. She is an avid traveler - with New York as the most frequent destination - and considers herself a polymath, with a broad range of interests ranging from politics and economics, to architecture and food. 

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:

Step outside your comfort zone whenever you can; that's how you learn and grow.

On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me:

With a cup of coffee and my iPad, catching up on my reading.

Favorite place in the world:

New York City. 

The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time:

I have close to one hundred house plants in my 81sqm apartment that I care for.

I’m happiest when:

I'm at a nice restaurant, enjoying amazing food, wine, and service.

Favorite online destination (other than so/ambitious, obviously):


Cats or dogs?

Dogs - as I have one (the cutest one!) myself. But I love animals in general, and used to have cats as a kid.
