Moro! (Hello!) from Proakatemia,
my name is Anna Vikman and I am a member in this year’s team of International Relations.
This is our teams first blogpost. I will be introducing our team and later Joonatan, the head of International Relations will tell you a little bit about himself and what he has been up to from the beginning of this fall.
In Proakatemia we have three teams: Marketing & Communications, International Relations and Data. These teams consist of teampreneurs from the eight companies we have here in Proakatemia at the moment.
This year 2018-2019 there are 10 members in our team of International Relations.
Our Head of International Relations is Evianna Sipilä. She is a teampreneur in a company called Kajo. Since Evianna is in the Netherlands right now on her Erasmus exchange, Joonatan Halonen from the company called Promisia is covering for her.
Our team has also other teampreneurs from Promisia. These members are Lassi Seppä, Noora-Emilia Hassinen and Juuso Hakala. Promisia and Hurma are the most recent companies that have been established here in Proakatemia. The companies were founded in January 2018.
From Hurma our team has three members: Petteri Kiuru, Janne “Sipri” Pussinen and Sanna Tahlo.
Last but not least our team has one member, Annamari Aalto from a company called Value. I myself am a teampreneur in the same company as Evianna, the company called Kajo. Both Kajo and Value were founded last fall of 2017. So, all together the team of International Relations has teampreneurs from four different companies.
I am very excited to be a part of this team and I can’t wait to see what this year has instored for us!
Next, I will let Joonatan tell you more!
My name is Joonatan Halonen and I’m the Head of International Relations of Proakatemia. Together with the team of international relations we host all the guests that comes to visit our school and now we’re starting to really go in to the international business scenery.
My journey as the head of international relations started when Evianna Sipilä travelled to the Netherlands to participate in an erasmus program. I’ve adjusted well to my new role and I’m actually enjoying it a lot. I get to meet new people from all over the world and I’ve already gotten a couple chances to work abroad.
In September we had quite a few quests here in Proakatemia. We had a group of about twenty people from Brazil. We also had guests from the UK, Italy, Gaza, USA, India and Peru counting up to 30 guests plus the brazilians. Meeting all these wonderful people is a great privilege. We get to grow our network of contacts to all over the world.
Best regards, Anna and Joonatan
