Next level mom and pop team

Birte Thornquist

Birte is a Norwegian mother of 3 young kids with a master´s degree from the University of Bergen in “Informasjonsvitenskap,” which, loosely translated, means “information design.” For the past 11 years she has been an interaction designer for itslearning, one of the world´s leading online learning platforms.

But Birte´s passion is for design more broadly defined - design of interiors, design of spaces, design of digital products. To combine aesthetics and function and not let one outweigh the other.

Focusing on direct user testing, when applicable, along the way.

Together with her husband, Kelly, she is in pursuit of work primarily with entrepreneurially minded folk who are looking to build cool new experiences.

Kelly Moulton

Kelly is an American father of 3 young kids with a master´s degree in American Studies from the University of Virginia. He has lived in NY, London and Dublin before settling into Bergen. An exited tech entrepreneur, he is now actively engaged as a mentor and investor in the local startup scene.

Kelly is delighted to call BTO his home away from home and helped launch its most recent startup program, Mediekuben, located in Media City Bergen - for entrepreneurs focused on consumers.

To complement his wife´s skills, Kelly is more focused on early stage financing, sales, marketing - and hardcore pitch training in particular.
