WE CO-CREATE COMPANIES IN HEALTH, WEB, GAMES AND TECH.
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.
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.
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.
