Over the past 10 years Panu has been working in different positions ranging from multinational technology corporations in Finland to social networking and hardware startups in the US. He has also founded several startup companies both in Finland and in the US. Currently he is managing startup projects within a medium-sized Finnish company.
Panu is passionate about product and business development, especially within the realm of IoT and physical products. That passion and the time spent in the Silicon Alley led him and a few friends to founding Hardware Startup Finland ry (aka Hardware HEL), a community for Finnish hardware startups. Hardware Startup Finland is a non-profit association, helping Finnish hardware entrepreneurs build networks, find partners and customers and solve “hard” problems.
