Honored to become the Finnish World Summit Awards representative


Life is amazing. Super excited to announce that I was nominated as the Finnish National Expert for the World Summit Awards (WSA). This is a unique opportunity to promote innovative Finnish digital startups in a global framework.

Also, I am honored to be part of a Global Online Jury that will evaluate all the WSA contest entries from nearly 180 countries. The selected finalists will compete at the WSA Global Congress, taking place 20-22 March 2018 in Vienna!

Personally, what an inspiring way to get a state-of-the-art overview about the digital innovations globally. Workwise, what a remarkable opportunity to link University of Helsinki & global innovative digital startup scene in our trainings at HY+. Total Crazinessss! 🙂
