bookstore fifteen years later. Since then I have been a founder, active investor and board member in more than 35 companies. I have had several nice upswings, ten exits and one IPO, but I am still looking for my first billion dollars.As I saw need for more hands on collaboration for angel investments in Finland, I was one of the Co-founders and chairman of FiBAN (Finnish Business Angel network).
