A very easy person to chat with on how larger pieces come together and how feasible some thinking behind it actually is. Most appreciated!
I came in with a list of questions and asked as many as I could in 30 minutes! Peter did a great job handling not only a variety of questions but from a variety of vantages with some even theoretical. Thank you again!
As always, Pietari was great to talk to. The right balance of answering my specific questions, while providing broad insights and context to help me see the big picture.

Super helpful again, really appreciate you helping me get quick answers to incredibly important questions so I can make the most informed decisions. Thanks Pietari!
I consulted with Pietari regarding startup investment and he provided a lot of clarity and actionable advice. I especially appreciated him taking time on a weekend to help me out with something urgent. I'd definitely consult with him again on legal matters for startups.
This is my second call with Pietari and he is such a calming force for business owners. If you want advice about startups, VC, exits, licensing or mergers and acquisitions...this is your guy. He is knowledgeable, humble and if he doesn't know something he'll direct you where to get the answer. Don't hesitate to book a call with him!
