Startup Life in New York is also getting reinforcements. After one year of program’s inception, following Vuokko and Panu – we have two more amazing people joining NYC startups. If they can make it here, we’re pretty excited to see what they’ll do in the future. As for the companies – New York City is a center for media and advertising, as you can see also from our startups there – Adcade and Medialets this time, Adsafe Media a year ago.
Tarmo is a fourth year information science student from University of Oulu. This summer, he will be changing the capital of Northern Finland to Capital of the World while he is joining Adcade, a mobile advertising company with a HTML5 rich media platform. Tarmo worked last summer as a project lead in a small web development team and now it’s time for him to join a fast-paced New York startup and craft the future of mobile advertising.
Originally from Colombia, Fernando is currently studying for a masters at Aalto University’s International Design Business Management program. Now, he’ll become our business guy in the Big Apple, as he is joining Medialets – a company building a rich media advertising platform. He has already a lot of experience in marketing: he has worked as an account executive and viral marketing manager and he has also co-founded a startup before.
