I work as a Senior Business Advisor at Helsinki Business Hub. I have 16+ years of global business, management, consulting, digital transformations and sales experience from technology and application intensive businesses with a sound understanding of strategy and innovation processes. I focus on fostering innovation, ecosystems and growth.
I have experience in working in a global matrix organisation and have set up a Global Innovation Ecosystem for EMEA region for an American corporation. I’ve been working across industries and sectors: Healthcare & Life Sciences, Banking and Financial services, Insurance, Retail, Consumer goods, Energy and utilities, and horizontal sectors like cyber security, IoT, artificial intelligence and circular economy.
I am keen to help corporations setting up ecosystems and to find startups and scaleups growth opportunities within ecosystems being those partnerships, pilots or project based activities. I have also worked with the national invest in organisation specialising in clients that were looking at setting up R&D centres, university collaboration and M&A deals in Finland.
