Helena was quite prodigious as a child and showed many signs of a future successful life. She started working when she was only 13. And, by the time she was 25, she had worked with a couple of multinational outfits in her home country, honing her corporate, administrative and managerial skills. Either consciously or not, she was getting prepared for her future career in the business world through those experiences.

Early Life and Career Beginnings
The businesswoman was born on August 25, 1970, in Lindesberg, Sweden. The first daughter of Ingemar Seger and his wife, Margareta Seger, Helena has a younger brother named Henrik Seger and also a younger sister named Karin Seger. The three of them were raised together in Sweden.
Helena was a very ambitious kid who sought her freedom from parental control quite early in life.

She also did a couple of odd jobs like when she served as a barmaid in a local pub.
With time, she also worked with a number of multinational firms, where she rose to very exalted positions of responsibility. For instance, she worked as a sales representative in a company named Bonner for three years. She also served as a sales rep with Corona and Hooch. Other outfits Helena served include Diesel, Austria Tabak, Slakthuset, Malaco Leaf and more.
All along, Helena Seger kept adding value to her resume. First, she attended pattern design and fabric embroidery classes in between her regular jobs. Then, she also went to college to study Economics and take up other educational programs all geared towards improving on herself in the areas of management, communication and whatever is needed to attain entrepreneurial heights. Besides, propelled by her good looks, the highly industrious lady is said to have worked as a model at a time. All these engagements did not only add to her earning profile, but it also enabled her to climb the career ladder and widen the scope of her experience. So, eventually, when she launched out to establish her own business, it was based on a strong foundation.
As an entrepreneur, Helena Seger started out her investment life in the textile industry. However, later in life, she diversified to other businesses. Currently, she is focused on real estate together with her partner, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
