Sami’s handwriting can be seen already in the first steps of There. Smart Home was in Nokia one venture in his R&D project portfolio, which he finally sold to its management. After that he was operations director at telecom operator Radiolinja, and development manager of Helen, the energy utility of Helsinki. Finnish sailing community knows Sami as a long-time coach, international referee and competition director. Of course, also as a competitive sailor. His numerous other activities are too many to be listed here. A real multi talent. Ask him about them in for example ancient Greek, Hebrew or in six other languages.
Timo has 40-year experience from the very core of There technology. Before his now 10-year There career he has helped big Finnish enterprises e.g. Nokia and Tieto through his own consulting firm. He knows intimately the whole There system and is the brains of company R&D. He is fully devoted equally as a coder as well as a HW designer. The new generation ThereGate 3.0 product family is Timo’s baby. A sworn Linux man, with humor as sharp as his competence. Both Apple and Windows receive a fair share of it, but it is better not to write more about it here.
Tapio has 30-plus year experience from the energy sector. There is the fourth company he manages. The most visible of them was Fennovoima Oy, a new Finnish nuclear power company. It secured the acceptance of the Finnish Parliament under his leadership. That was accomplished in the beginning by a small team, and with the same pioneering spirit as now in There. CO2-free both, and now it is There’s turn to support the growth of renewables, wind and solar. Tapio loves to tell how. And wants to be called Tapsa. Also on tennis courts and golf courses.
