EP #35 Jussi Salovaara from Antler

Original Post

This week’s special guest is Jussi Salovarra from Antler.  Jussi is the co-founder and managing partner at Antler, a startup generator and early-stage VC that turns the world’s top talent into great founders of great companies. Their hands-on approach enables top talents to team up with the right co-founders and develop and scale their ideas. Before Antler, Jussi was the Vice President at Nokia’s headquarter in Helsinki and also had his experiences built across working with promising international companies such as McKinsey, Deloitte and Morgan Stanley.

Together, we discuss Antler’s unique approach on accepting applicants as individuals, not a team to their 6 months program.  After having to meet hundreds of aspiring founders, Jussi shares his thoughts on why having a co-founder is like a marriage and what qualities to look for in a co-founder.  Also, he gives advice to entrepreneurs who are struggling to find that one perfect idea and emphasizes his belief on why Execution eats ideas for breakfast!
