I founded Korpi Capital with Mikko Leppänen in 2013 in order to concentrate our investment activities under one company. I am responsible for the management of the firm, corporate governance, as well as the preparation of our investment decisions. I assess issues with an actor-focused approach, and believe that when you do something with joy, you do it well. I am prone to parsimony and certainty in my decision-making. I have a Master of Science degree in Economics from the University of Eastern Finland, and I originate from Keminmaa.

My road as an entrepreneur began in 1999, when I co-founded Barona Human Resource Services with Markus Oksa. I started focusing on investing in 2007. Together with Tatu, we concentrated our investments under Korpi Capital in 2013. The crux of my work is to find talented people and good business ideas and connect them. I believe that the prerequisite for a profitable business is competent leadership, which makes even a mediocre business idea into a success story. Apart from looking for and creating new investment ideas, I am responsible for investment relations.

I've started at Korpi Capital in early 2021. I graduated from the University of Vaasa with a Master's degree in finance in the summer 2019. Before starting at Korpi Capital, I worked at OP Corporate Bank for three years. At OP, I spent the first two years with investment products and the final year as a credit analyst. My role at Korpi Capital includes various tasks regarding our current and potential future portfolio companies, such as financial analysis of our portfolio companies as well as creating materials for acquisitions. I am fascinated by the opportunity to build success stories together with skilled and motivated colleagues as well as entrepreneurs.

I have lived around the world and found a home at Korpi. I spent my childhood in Germany, graduated from Cambridge with an MA in mathematics, completed an MBA in Paris, and completed reserve officer training in the Finnish defence forces in North Karelia. For ten years, I worked as a strategy consultant for Boston Consulting Group in Stockholm and Los Angeles. During the course of my career I have investigated different aspects of value creation. I believe value is generated when a business idea meets suitable owners. When value is created for the owners, it is also automatically accrued for clients, employees, and subcontractors. This process is the foundation of our society. In my work I strive to create the best possible group of owners for a company and to participate in value creation as one of the owners.
