More about the event

Finland has the largest amount of researchers per capita. The level of research in many fields is world class. There are also many successful startups that have been created from research, and we think a lot more research-based startups could be founded. 

For example, Johanna Småros (DSc.), the CMO and Co-founder of Relex is coming to the event to share her insights. She is currently leading the sales and business development at Relex and has successfully driven the international expansion across the Scandinavia and the Baltic region. She also has a background of collaborating with the BIT Research Centre and is responsible for groundbreaking work; planning and forecasting collaboration between retailers and suppliers.
