At Maiyak we are proudly introducing Peder Rotkirch as new member of the Advisory Board.
Peder Rotkirch has a well proven track record from working with digital change management & innovation with several of the world’s most recognised brands such as IKEA, Volvo, SAS, among others. He’s also a business- and startup mentor at Founder Institute.
We catched the opportunity during the summer holidays to ask Peder three questions about his new role at Maiyak.
I’ve always had a soft spot for underdogs taking on a mission to change the world to the better
What about Maiyak caught your interest to join us?
“Being a challenger in a traditional and conservative market is always exciting – and equally difficult to pull off. I’ve always had a soft spot for underdogs taking on a mission to change the world to the better”, Peder says with a smile.
Mentioning your background, how can Maiyak benefit from your experience in our continued journey, scaling our offering?
“Let’s see what the future brings in terms of challenges, but I hope my extensive experience working with coaching startups may come handy when getting practical. It’s always easy to have opinions, being creative and having a strategic mindset, but by the end of the day it comes down to being able to find what’s the most important at the moment and getting the execution right.”
it has never been more important to consider how we all as individuals can contribute making a better tomorrow
Which opportunities do you see for Mayiak and how does that relate to your own interest?
“Given the times we now live in with both climate change and a pandemic, it has never been more important to consider how we all as individuals can contribute making a better tomorrow. The Mayiak offering enables investors to more easily find creative, talented and passionate entrepreneurs that are working to change the world faster and more sustainable. By utilising the Mayiak platform they would be able to find investments that they personally care for, not only financially. If the entrepreneurs would be able to find healthier funding and smart (and more emotional) capital in this process we would create a real win-win situation for all stakeholders. If I can contribute in making that happen in any way, I’d be delighted.”
Maiyak is a digital platform helping people to find, assess, and compare investment opportunities with sustainable non-public companies that they personally really care for, not only find financially interesting. Find investments that can make a difference for wallet, planet and heart!
We are currently in the final stage of beta-testing the investor platform. In September we are launching our full commercial offer. If you are interested to try, please send us an email; firstname.lastname@example.org
