The person behind Bladverk

Sampo Lehtiniemi CEO and Owner

I am, in my own words, an intense strategy advisor implementing corporate transformation and new company development cases. With over 15 years’ management experience and a proven track record in leading companies to grow, my strengths are product and service leadership, partner ecosystems, and management advisory. By education, I am a business strategist, who has since found himself in the software industry, energy industry, trade and services companies, and fast growth startups.

My career includes transformative companies such as Microsoft, Tieto, Helen and new venture building with Coventures. My target is to help people to unlock their true potential, so they can nourish companies to grow and thrive, whether that means conceptualizing new visions and business strategies, sharpening up the current ones, or becoming an active co-founder or investor for them.

Sampo Lehtiniemi, Bladverk.

The Story of Bladverk

To fulfill my mission, I created Bladverk. The name Bladverk comes from the Nordic word for foliage. As well as a tree requires fertile ground to grow and bud the new leaves, companies and businesses require someone to take care of theirs needs. With the hand-picked partners, I have the know-how to advise start-ups scaling from the fertile ground, encourage large companies to implement their objectives, and bring continuity to companies during times of change, so they can bear fruit in the future. 

I commonly bring together the reformists of the management team, developer-minded professionals, and visionary board members. However, I believe in cross-industry collaboration, and partnerships with innovative technology suppliers, academia, and individuals are fundamental to my work. The most interesting projects are the ones that address the challenges of a changing world and have an impact on the well-being of future generations. Augmenting growth is my mission.
