I met Miika in Helsinki a few years ago. He’s an interesting guy: Teacher, game developer, and also sings in a Hardcore Punk band! I was interested to learn more about the highly-rated Finnish education system and what it’s like to be a teacher there. We then talk about why Mikka decided to go down the entrepreneurial route with his company . We talk about developing educational games and entrepreneurship in general, including why teachers have a huge advantage when it comes to making products and services for schools.

I hope you enjoyed the podcast and if you did please leave us a podcast review or YouTube comment it really means a lot to us!
