We are entrepreneurs who became investors almost by accident. We made a few angel investments together and, over time, realised that the Nordic market badly needed early-stage investors with entrepreneurial backgrounds. We also noticed that working with entrepreneurs is tremendously fun. In addition, we seemed to be able to help many of them realise their vision. We therefore became full-time investors and have never looked back.
We invest in early-stage companies that we are passionate about and that we believe we can help, often based on our experience as founders and CxOs of various companies.
Timo has worked in several industries, ranging from biotech to apps, digital media and process technology. He earned his entrepreneur MBA from CRF Health, a software and services company that he co-founded, developed into a global market leader and successfully exited in 2015. Timoâ€™s free time flies with family, ice hockey, iron and in Lapland skiing-hikes.
Kai is a builder of all things, but mostly things of software. He has worked on massive distributed systems at Google and founded Tinkercad and Airstone to create cutting edge products for emerging market segments. A tinkerer at heart he is particularly interested in advanced manufacturing and robotics. When needing a break he spends time with his family renovating a 19th century farmhouse using traditional craftsmanship.
Petteri has founded five companies, including Jaiku and First Hop. In addition to the various startup CxO roles and board memberships, he has been the chairman of Supercell, Grand Cru and Everywear Games. Petteri has experienced public companies as a board member of Elisa, Finland’s largest telco, in addition to working for Google in Mountain View and London after its acquisition of Jaiku. In his free time, Petteri hangs out with his family, pumps iron, plays games, writes (toy) code, and enjoys books and movies.
Samuli has worked in analyst and controller roles in corporate treasuries, investment banking and startups. He holds a Master’s degree in Finance from Aalto University School of Business. Samuli enjoys spending his free time with family and friends, sports, movies and learning new stuff.
Juha joined Lifeline in January 2016, and has been investing together with Petteri and Timo since 2010. Juha has been an active early-stage investor and he has long experience from the growth-focused private ownership model, working with the best private equity firms in the region. He was previously a partner with EQT, a leading private equity firm. Juha likes to spend his free time doing things with his family; heâ€™s also a keen reader and an occasional runner.
Ilkka, the CEO of Lifeline’s portfolio company Supercell, is a games entrepreneur with 10+ years of experience in growing organizations from the founding team to a size of few hundreds. Before Supercell, Ilkka was a President at Digital Chocolate, running its Studios in Helsinki, Barcelona and Silicon Valley. In his free time, Ilkka enjoys time with his family and tries to find time for sports, music and books.
