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.

I joined the team at Korpi Capital in January 2018. I am currently pursuing my Master of Laws (LLM) degree at the University of Helsinki, where I have completed a Bachelor's Degree in both Law and World Politics. At Korpi, I am responsible for issues regarding contract and taxation law. In my work, I truly enjoy the opportunity to contribute to the growth of our portfolio companies together with my talented colleagues, entrepreneurs, and management.

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 joined the team at Korpi Capital in the summer of 2017. I am currently completing my Master of Arts (MA) degree in Economics and Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. I have also enrolled into the Industrial Engineering and Management degree programme at Aalto University. My role at Korpi is to analyze and perform calculations on our potential investment targets. I also oversee our current investments in close collaboration with the management and board of our portfolio companies. What inspires me in this position is the challenge of evaluating the potential of companies, and the opportunity to build the growth journeys of new investments.

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.
