    • When I was a kid…
    • My dream job was to become a movie director…
    • …or a football manager
    • ..but I loved making profit by trading Donald Duck cartoons
    • When I was a teenager..
    • I fell in love with computers…
    • …and coded my first website
    • …but ended up producing and selling strong home-made brew
    • When I went to University..
    • At first, I felt completely lost…
    • …then I saw an opportunity in selling fireworks
    • …which helped me to find Aalto Entrepreneurship Society
    • After joining Aaltoes..
    • I build a network of 1000+ professionals
    • I helped to create summer jobs for 40 students…
    • …and continued to create 50+ companies
    • After helping others I felt now it’s time to do my own stuff..
    • So you can call me a serial entrepeneur nowadays…

    • Together with a team of young coaches setting up the biggest football conference in the Nordics called Arctic Football Forum
