Our team

Nice to meet you! Drop us a message and let's come up with something extraordinary together.

Johanna Vierros
Head of Program, Phoenix.fi

I focus my energy on supporting our non-profit incubator teams as well as I can. I am in charge of designing the incubator program, including expert lead workshops and mentoring on whatever topic the teams need the most. Together with Malva we make sure that these ideas get an opportunity to grow into lasting social movements with tangible impact.

I am a creative problem solver and enjoy meeting new people from all walks of life, even without a common language. When offline, you can find me skiing, sailing or wandering in Finnish national parks.

Head of Product, Phoenix.fi

My main responsibilities include communications and marketing for phoenix.fi and developing the site with our amazing pro bono partners Vincit and TBWA\Helsinki. Together with Johanna we help the non-profit incubator teams find volunteers and company partners via a community and site which makes volunteering flexible, meaningful and fun!

I have mad organisational skills and I’m very communications-oriented. I love France and French and would gladly spend half of the year by the sea.
