Ricard studied Business administration with a focus on entrepreneurship and innovation at Lund University, Sweden, between 2008-2011. He also did a semester at the University of Florence, Italy. In 2008, he started his first company, Good Life Design, together with his brother. In 2012, Ricard was selected to participate in Novare Accelerate, a business program for young professionals, a network he is still a member of.
Ricard worked at Svenska Handelsbanken in Malmö and Stockholm (Capital Markets) between 2010-2013, followed by an internship at the Swedish Embassy (Chamber of Commerce) in London. When finished, Ricard started working at the Swiss asset management firm Lombard Odier IM, also in London, developing the Nordic institutional arm of the business.
Ricard believes in the concept of Next Generation for many reasons, predominantly the urge and willingness to make charity cool and something common, not one-off occasions. He believes NextGEN will succeed in being a global network for young professionals that together will work for the less fortunate. Ricard has always had a passion for building strong networks, interact with people from different countries and cultures in order to strive for greatness together.
