Ilkka Kivimäki

FOUNDING PARTNER
ILKKA@MAKI.VC
+358 50 370 0097

This man does everything serial: founding growth stories and backing the most prominent startups - he was the first investor and former chairman of Wolt, sat on the board of Beddit before it was acquired by Apple, and sold his own company to an industry giant. Ilkka is passionate about developing the Nordic startup ecosystem – he’s chaired Slush and Startup Sauna, served on the boards of the student-led VC Wave Ventures and Europe’s biggest hackathon Junction, and acted as Head Coach for Startup Sauna, mentoring a new generation of entrepreneurs, and now sits on the Aalto University Board.

FOUNDERS Hear us Out.

When we invest, you as a founder get the entire Maki team to work with you, side by side.

And we don’t only support founders, we support the early hires, too. We know that building the early processes at a new venture is hard - and it becomes impossible without the right support network. Our community of entrepreneurs and doers at Maki House work side by side with the new entrants to supercharge their growth.

Do you have the next ground-breaking idea? Let us know about it. Reach out to us at lets@maki.vc
