Päivi Söderström

Päivi’s experience in strategic collaboration and relationship management in a big international company creates good basis for her tasks in course co-operation and external collaboration.


Päivi is thrilled about the operational development of the StartUp School, as she can use the knowledge she gathered during 6 years of assessment visits to international companies of all sizes. This is topped-off with experience of the ups and downs of establishing startup-like non-profit operations in between working in the international film and travel industries. She also thinks the development of the StartUp School data systems is interesting and fun! She has a Master’s degree in database development and significant experience working on demanding software development projects, as well as in the management of international software sourcing cases.


Päivi also loves to ideate, create and try new things, and that’s just what the StartUp School is all about.
