A founding story

Since I was 14 years old and living in Finland,

I dreamt of working in nanotechnology and robotics.

I was fascinated by the idea of tiny robots that could go inside our body and cure diseases. People said I was crazy, but I eventually managed to secure a place at the University of York to study Electronics Engineering with Nanotechnology. During my undergraduate, I got a taste of the start-up scene, interning and becoming a full-time lead software developer for a VR stroke rehabilitation spinout.

 

Soon after, I moved to Scotland to acquire my PhD in ‘Intelligent Sensing and Measurement’ at the University of Edinburgh and Glasgow, specialising in micro-, and nano-fabrication.

By the time I finished my PhD, Touchlab was my second start-up. Acting previously as CTO, I gave Touchlab a solid foundation with an initial FTSE 100 customer.

 

I’m a CEO and founder, but also leading our ANA Avatar XPrize competition team. This time I am surrounded by other experts, in fields such as product design, machine learning, robotics, and a board of commercial advisors and mentors.
