I am really into startups and eager to join new exciting projects. Currently, I am changing the North European startup ecosystem via Aalto Entrepreneurship Society, where I serve as a Board Member. Furthermore, I am working at Mendor, a cutting edge health care startup from Finland. Mendor makes the everyday lives of people with diabetes a lot easier by providing discreet, easy to use and all-in-one blood glucose meters and smart analysis software for blood glucose monitoring.
My best qualities are project management skills, analytical approach and ability to solve problems. In addition, I love to travel and experience new cultures.

I am finishing up a Master’s degree at Aalto School of Economics and have previously studied in Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium, IIT Kanpur, India and Yonsei University, South Korea.
I intern at Simpa Networks, a Bangalore-based multinational energy startup that aims to bring solar energy to the unelectrified through a “pay-as-you-go” business model. At Simpa, I’ve worked on creating various marketing materials and instructions for different user groups as well as setting up customer support.
Simpa works in an emerging industry with a new business model – as an intern I got to see the many sides of building a fast growing product-centric business, from technology hurdles and establishing distribution channels to understanding customer behavior and marketing the product accordingly.
