Global Innovation Manager
Today Jan chairs Arctic15, a high-profile startup business event held in Helsinki by ArcticStartup, and has been the main force of growing the event from 400 attendees to 1500+ attendees in just 2,5 years. He does not stop there and currently has a couple of new ArcticStartup spin-offs on his table. Entrepreneur-by-heart – and by actions since 1998. Being an expert in spotting new opportunities and creating new concepts, Jan has been partner or co-founder in six different companies in various industries. In the early 2000’s he was pioneering some of the very first WAP, SMS, and interactive TV based wireless games and fantasy sports games in the Nordic countries. Jan loves to watch Shark Tank and The Profit on his free time. And he is a FC Barcelona fan.
