Finnish startup pockets entrepreneurship prize
MeetingPackage.com, a Finnish online meeting room booking platform, is the winner of the 2016 AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award.
The winner was announced by the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) and Junior Achievement Europe. AmCham EU represents American companies committed to Europe on trade, investment and competitiveness issues, and JA Europe is Europe’s largest provider of education programmes for entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy.
“JA has played a big role throughout my career and it’s an honour to win the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award, in collaboration with JA Europe,” says founder and CEO of MeetingPackage.com, Joonas Ahola. “Without the significant role of JA in the early stages of my life I might not be in this situation where I am currently. I am really looking forward to the mentorship and advice I will receive from the AmCham EU European CEOs.”
AmCham EU CEO Susan believes that MeetingPackage.com will benefit from the advice and mentorship provided by our European CEOs.
“I am very proud to say that encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation is one of our five policy priority areas here at AmCham EU and it gives me great pleasure to see previous winners doing so well and putting into practice what they have learned,” Danger noted. “I have no doubt MeetingPackage.com will be the same!”
Recently MeetingPackage.com announced that it is soon going to start operating in London.
