Startup pedigree unleashed

Our team's roots in scaling Nordic tech giants are at the heart of Herizon's mission. With a track record of bringing startup agility and growth to the tech industry, we're leveraging our expertise to drive inclusivity and innovation.

"I trained and employed 100 immigrant women while solving my own problem for finding high potential diverse talent."

Founder's vision

Empowering through action

In facing a critical bottleneck at an early-stage venture capital firm Icebreaker.vc, Mari Luukkainen launched the Growth Hacking Internship. This initiative was not just a solution to a business challenge but a gateway to meaningful change.

Over two years, 100 immigrant women were trained and employed, showcasing a remarkable success rate of 95% and demonstrating the power of targeted training programs.

Herizon has evolved from a solution to a venture capital bottleneck into a pioneering force in tech, blending non-profit goals with startup efficiency.

Now employing over 100 people yearly, our team, known for scaling major Nordic tech companies, aims to employ 100,000, driving diversity and inclusivity in tech with innovative scaling strategies.
