About Petri Kajander

I’m Petri Kajander and I’m passionate about building the future with growth companies.

My mission is to empower individuals to create an inspiring global humane society based on dignity, voluntary cooperation and respect for individuals.

I help founders to make better decisions in a fast, efficient and fun way that brings new ideas, customers, partners, funding and higher valuations in building successful growth companies at scale.

In a sentence, you could call me a business artist – delivering an inspiring and humane future with growth companies.


Over the years, I have co-founded startups but worked with and helped many others globally. You may associate me with the Chairman as a Service solution I launched for ambitious entrepreneurs for growing faster and thriving for success.

As an eternal optimist, I embrace change and get excited about the new opportunities it brings. I surround myself with dedicated and inspiring people who solve complex challenges and build a better future in different walks of life.

My entrepreneurial drive finds me building growth companies  but I also pursue other endeavours. I have discovered the wonders of book writing, translating and publishing. Barefoot running, founding a think tank, a TV-documentary and a movie role have also been crossed off my bucket list.

You can find me living in various locations (Europe so far), reading or writing, enjoying dark chocolate or jazz music. I may also appear in your morning TV-show, weekly magazine or business event (before covid-19 at least!). I also host Talks with Petri and Purpose n’ Clarity -podcasts.

I have been lucky to meet, work and become friends with many wonderful people. Some of them have been kind enough to say a few words about me (see my View Petri Kajander's profile on LinkedIn).
