  • Christen Eugen Ager-Hanssen (geboren 29. Juli 1962) ist ein norwegischer Investor und ehemaliger Internet-Unternehmer. (de)
  • Christen Eugen Ager-Hanssen, född 29 juli 1962 i Halden, är en norsk investerare, entreprenör och riskkapitalist. Christen Ager-Hanssen är son till kärnfysikern och företagsledaren (1930–2004) och Høyre-politikern Bjørg Ager-Hanssen. Han växte upp i Halden, Oslo och Stavanger och flyttade 1989 till Sverige, där han arbetade för IBM och Kinnevik i Stockholm. År 1997 bildade Christen Ager-Hanssen riskkapitalföretaget Cognition Capital, med säte i Göteborg, i vilket han hade en andel på 70 %. Ager-Hanssen grundade flera IT-företag tillsammans med sin tidigare arbetsgivare Kinnevik. Mot slutet av 1990-talet ansågs han av norska Verdens Gang vara den rikaste personen i Norge. Detta baserades på att banken HSBC inför en planerad börsnotering av Cognition under 2000 värderat företaget till mellan 15 och 20 miljarder kronor. Börsnoteringen genomfördes inte, och han förlorade mycket pengar i IT-bubblan 2001. (sv)
