Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Pentti Komssi. I am employed by the regional association of entrepreneurs (Pääkaupunkiseudun Yrittäjät) and work at A Grid in Otaniemi, Espoo. I offer counselling on public procurement in the Helsinki metropolitan area and give entrepreneurs and companies advice in matters related to public procurement. EnterpriseEspoo’s clients can reach me by e-mail, phone or personally.

My recipe for success to an entrepreneur or someone planning to become an entrepreneur:

Be brave and set your goals high. Arrange sales meetings only with people who actually make decisions. Remember to also participate in procurements that may at first sight seem a little too big. I can tell you how it is done.

Things that inspire me (in addition to promoting entrepreneurship):

In addition to my work, I am interested in keeping myself fit and in motorcycles.  Both these hobbies are close to my heart. Taking a ride on small country roads is the best way to relax after a tough day at work. When you ride a motorcycle, you can smell the nature and see the scenery in a special way.
