ENTREPRENEURSHIP FOR GENERATIONS

This year marks 30 years since Thor Spandow (79) established Spabo Eiendom. He still calls himself an entrepreneur. It just comes naturally.

A couple of years ago, the Spabo Group had a generational shift. Daily operation has been passed to his three children, but Thor remains the chair of the group and  continues to be an entrepreneur.

“We’re all serial entrepreneurs, me and the kids. Every company, every apartment building, is a new entrepreneurial project. We are not speculators, we are developers and custodians. We buy older estates, and renovate and develop them. We build new business districts from scratch, or acquire and develop smaller companies. It’s all about creating value and entering long-term investments.”
