Nina joined the investment team at OpenOcean from McKinsey & Co, where she worked as a top management consultant, mainly focusing on PE and large-scale transformations. She completed her military service in the Finnish Air Force, which spiked her interest in aviation. This led to her having an R&D role at a drone startup and later developing a flight route optimization software in co-operation with Aalto University and the Finnish Air Force. Nina studied at Aalto University, majoring in Engineering Mathematics and Physics. During her studies, she was heavily involved in the student organization Teknologföreningen (TF), where she also had a full-time voluntary position as Chairperson of the Board for a year.
