Another media startup trying to provide context around the news, using opinion writing #Discors #media #startups
The app, Discors, presents news stories alongside columns and analysis, photos, and a timeline, all in one stream. Can it build an audience while remaining self-contained?

Story
Tagline
Entrepreneur | Startup advisor & investor
Introduction
I am an entrepreneur, independent advisor and investor with a passion for helping startups and other growth companies. I have particular focus on the design of a viable business model, best customer experience and Go2Market strategy. I am currently actively involved as an advisor and investor in a good number of Finnish startups. I'm also an experienced Board member in several companies and foundations.

My investments focus mainly on green tech, i.e. ecological products and services based on sustainable business. In any startup the core team is the most important asset. A good idea is a start, but its implementation and timing are crucial to success. I’m particularly interested in the Business Model and Go2Market strategy.
Bragging rights
I enjoy cooking, fresh herbs, sailing, outdoor life and photography.
