Probably the best event of my week in China! I loved it!
— Prime Minister of Finland, Mr. Juha Sipilä.
Prime Minister of Finland, Mr. Juha Sipilä, on the tailored event headed by Lauri Tammi and Lauri Virkkunen and their team during the official state visit of PM Sipilä in China. Among other, during that week Mr. Sipilä met also with President Xi Jinping, Prime Minister Li Keqiang and attended the World Economic forum’s “China Davos” in Dalian. We organised a Global Startup Event with 40 Young Chinese and global startup influencers and brought Chinese and international grassroots and government players together in a unique direct discussion with the Prime Minister and his team in the Finnish Embassy as part of the state visit.
For the last 10 years Lauri has tried to find out the essential about how to deal with the Chinese. Through his cultural and artistic experiences with the Chinese community and vast social studies in the top Nordic Asia research center he has gained a unique viewpoint to the Chinese society. He has combined his theoretical studies with hard work at the core of Chinese business, tech and government influencers. He took the historical challenge as the first European to bring and organise an over 1000-people startup event in Zhongguancun China, together with a dedicated Sino-Finnish team.
