In 2012, Sten K Johnson established a Foundation with the purpose of promoting research, development, education and culture in entrepreneurship, literature, music, medicine and technology.
The Foundation was donated 49 % of the shares in Sten K Johnson’s holding company. The Johnson family retains a long term and comfortable majority in the holding company and The Foundation will be given annual resources in terms of return on its shares.
Since 2013 the foundation has awarded 295 grants with a total of 36 miljon SEK.
This amount will be distributed directly or indirectly as grants, support, or otherwise used for foundation purposes. Future dividends to The Foundation depend on the holding company’s profits and the return on its shares.
The board is composed of two members, Anders and Kristian Bergstrand, the sons of Sten K Johnson and Johan Herrström from Advokatfirman Lindahls.
The Advisory Board
The Foundation’s Advisory Board comprises Anders Bergstrand, Nicholas Jacobsson and Suzanne Richter. The responsibility of the Advisory Board, on occasion assisted by relevant specialists/experts, is to support the Board in the selection of applicants.
