Lars Olof Känngård (Kanngard) have been involved and worked with planning and implementing electronic systems, routines and developed Business Concept Innovations, since early 70s.
A number of these spearheaded creations, are today known as
e-business, e-commerce or as Lars Olof Kanngard put it him self 1999 in a speech; "- The computer industry has joined the entrepreneurs and finally understood that earnings derives from applications in the new @-age".
" Where others see a problem, Lars sees a new business.
When others says, “that’s not possible, Lars will find a solution.
When others don’t believe that others can achieve, Lars will give them the chance.
The true values in life are not bills and coins, it is what you have shared and achieved for others." states Lars Olof on his upcoming 50th birthday, marked 37 years of entrepreneurship. Today 2015 he will celebrate 45 years as spearheaded entrepreneur and innovator.
Mr. Kanngard made his first, registered, innovation already before reaching the age of 15, the SAFETY LOK SYSTEM a radio frequency mirror (today known as RFID), embedded in a price tag in the supermarket the innovation would notify the staff of a shoplifting attempt and another version for banks and money transportations, where the same device, but larger would be part of the money-band (wrapped around the bank bills) and via a monitor system a bank robbery can be tracked block by block as he moves or drive a car.
To have something in his hand and convert it to something more, is just part of who Lars is, which was evident even at earlier age. At the age of three, when Lars Olof started to sell used bottle caps to neighbors and could by him self buy a toy or a candy, for sure empowered him to trust 'Entrepreneurial thinking' from start.
Background and Experience
Lars Olof Kanngard's formal education is "just" the basic school up to the 8th degree, and from
that age he has been working hard in the high-school and the university of life and claims that he is still a student.. As early as mid 70th Lars Olof came in contact with Video production, at that time, limited to Betamax, later also VHS, where Lars Olof invented a protection system for preventing Piracy protection of the video media as well as a complete member-rental system solution. This innovation came to be realized by a Joint Venture between LG Ridderstad (FTV Företags Television AB) under the name of VDC - Video Distribution Central AB and VIDEORENT, where Addressograph-Multigraph and DataCard US, as well as OCR Cruse AB in Sweden, which reached the market 1979.
This innovation "VDC" become the first in the world secure video rental solution, where each copied video cesset had a unique ID number encoded as part of the picture-frame, where also subtitles are encoded. Each video casette where thereafter identified by an applied standard plastic card from DataCard, with heat and clue, in the center of the casette and a duplicate of that ID card was inserted in the Video Box cover which was manufactured with a small card pocket on its back.
At each rental instance, the card from the Video-box cover PLUS the card from the consumers where placed in the Card imprinter from AM Addressograph and each of the card-slips where later read by OCR readers.
Lars Olof Kanngard has innovated, developed and implemented the first real public
outsource Governmental public service. This took place in Stockholm Sweden 1987/88
when the Försäkringskassan (Government Department Social Security) for the social security system in Sweden.
The story, on how it likely become the first outsourced public service in the world, where the Government did pay per transactions (per call) has its roots from that the Swedish Government, suddenly where forced to halt any investment projects, due to budget-cuts. Lars Olof had no chance to survive his company buy losing such a huge contract and understanding the dilemma of the Government, he than invented the solution;
The company will invest in the technology and make all the installations and the Government will pay per call........
