Our history

The idea behind Sensonomic was formed in the Kenyan highlands, where Anders worked for several nature conservancies whilst enrolled at the University of Oxford. In between hiding from elephants and stand-offs with hyenas, he thought there should be an easier way to evaluate the real value of land use. Not finding satisfactory solutions, Anders tested the idea of valuing changes in nature on Karl Trygve, and what was to become Sensonomic began to take form.

With a background in strategy consulting and economics, Anders came to the issue of land management via his Oxford MBA and projects in Kenya. Frustrated by one-off consulting reports, he set his mind to creating a new, smarter, tool, and Sensonomic was born.
