Who we are
Innovation House Finland (IHF) is a place that feels like home, a network, and a lair for angel investors – all this combined, to enable opposites to complement each other. IHF creates a new generation innovation culture in Finland by combining well-being and the quality and razor-sharp cutting edge of business.
IHF has a desire to create a more open working life and to introduce a culture of genuine networking and assistance to Finland, while building a stronger sense of community.
IHF’s dream is to transform July into the most productive month and help boost the Finnish economy.
What we are looking for
Based on their extensive work experience, Katja Aalto and Petra Erätuli-Kola, the women at the helm of Innovation House Finland, have a vision of how start-ups can be supported with the aid of passion, courage and the right people, while not forgetting the importance of well-being.
Nordic Innovation House, operating in Silicon Valley, opened our eyes: similar helpful and open cooperation between companies and a culture of achieving things together is what we need in Finland. We provide services both to Finnish companies aiming to establish themselves in foreign markets and to international companies wanting to secure a foothold in Finnish markets. Ideally, companies can discover mutual benefits and utilize the connections and networks of other companies. The equation consisting of start-ups, companies and innovative people can be used to create something that is greater than the sum of its parts,’ says Petra Erätuli-Kola.
Inspiration and dreams have created a story where work, expertise and innovation merge. The power duo from Mindsup is determined to climb a mountain in one year.
