Mr Jussila has M.Sc from Turku University, School of Economics, and post-graduate studies from Aalto University, the University of Koblenz in Germany and INSEAD in Paris.
Mr Jussila has been working in the global marketplace for over 20 years. He has made a career in former Nokia, holding there Global Business and ICT Platform Development roles.

Today in Japan, he continues ´Connecting People´ by accelerating the Business, Academia and Funding sectors especially between Japan and Finland in close collaboration with Helsinki Business Hub team.
“For the Japanese Corporations facing Digital Transformation with IoT & 5G and AI, or requirement to find New Customers, Helsinki and Finland is a great platform to start filling in the gaps: Easy access to EU markets and Russia, and growing pool of already existing and piloted Digital solutions matchmaking with established Future Strategies. Actually, Helsinki and Finland can be considered as a Country-wide Real-life Testbed for your new Smart City innovations and stepping stone to European & Global markets.
I am also encouraging Japanese Funding sector to look into the exciting and innovative Startup clusters in Finland, and also inviting the same time Japanese Startups to join this global co-creative startup movement.
Ongoing Digital Transformation means also great opportunities for Finnish companies and startups to establish new growth business with partnering Japanese companies. Moreover, Design From Finland products with its focus on functionality, sustainability and playful colourfulness continues having high awareness among Japanese consumers.”
