Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Nina is our Investment Associate tracking everything in the broader software automation space. In addition to screening and evaluating potential new investments, she is also a board observer in our portfolio companies Cambri, Workfellow and Operations1. In the future, she will also take on a larger role in supporting all our portfolio companies on ESG topics. 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.
