How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Great sales and product people who can focus and be agile in terms or working towards the right product market fit. People who are demanding and have high standards, but lead by respecting people, being honest and by example.

As an Advisor

I prefer a more intense relationship with working closely together on certain aspects. This is in contrast to being an advisor that comes in and have opinions once or twice a quarter.

We worked together  •  CEO and Co-Founder, WeVideo. Previously Founder, Mobile Financial Services Venture.
Jari is an amazing entrepreneur and head of software development. He have created a number of world leading products, and I am sure he will ... continue doing so.
Matthew Gertner
Founder and CEO, Salsita Software. Previously External consultant, Mozilla Corporation. University of Pennsylvania grad.
Jari was successfully managing a world-class development team when I first met him 15 years ago, and he has continued to do so ever since fo ... r a range of startups and large enterprises. Like most successful software executives, he has impeccable technology credentials and can get as deeply into the details as necessary to unstick projects and solve technical issues. He is also a clear and convincing communicator and an all-around nice guy.
