Areas of expertise
I teach in several courses at the University of Turku, related to, for example, lean startup method, value creation and business models.
My work centers around entrepreneurial action from different perspectives including individuals, firms and the society. My dissertation is about opportunity search and firm performance. The focus is especially on firm-level attitudes, abilities and actions related to innovativeness, risk-taking and proactiveness that may possibly benefit firms in their effort to improve performance. I am currently working in a project that focuses on examining young people's paths to entrepreneurship in rural areas of Finland.
