Ilkka Kivimäki

/ +358 50 370 0097

This man does everything serial: entrepreneurship, investing, adequate jokes. Previous years included adventures of founding several companies, venturing the Nordics, and having knees deep in Slush as the chairman of the board – just to name a few. Straight talk and absurdly honest feedback are Ilkka’s way to share unconditional love.

Pirkka Palomäki

/ +358 40 700 1133

Kind grin and occasional guffaw are a sure sign of Pirkka approaching. His thoughtful guidance is an Asset with capital A. Talking about letters, his C-level positions at F-Secure and Enevo, as well as advisor background at several startups ensure he’s not boggled by anything. Skippering success at work, and boats on spare time, is his lifestyle.

Josefiina Kotilainen

/ +358 50 513 1044

Precise but calm, Josefiina is the brain of this fellowship. Her wasabi-like acumen spices up any business. As an evidence, Jose’s years as Slush CFO guarantees that she knows how to control even the most confusing palettes. And, not to forget, she arrives to meetings with a motorcycle.

Paavo Räisänen

/ +358 40 773 8363

The analytical mastermind Paavo fluently navigates all levels of business, from boards to vanguards. With a background as a startup executive and a business development professional, he has hard knowledge on turning problems into profits.


The next step.
