Hi! My name is Jukka-Pekka Ovaska. I study in the Creative Sustainability master’s degree programme in Aalto University, Finland, and I have a growing passion towards sustainable and design-driven business innovations. In my blog I write about my passion and do my best to share resources and ideas on topics such as systems thinking, design thinking, leadership and sustainability.
I believe that the next wave of economic growth will result from the work of innovative companies and individuals who are able to take advantage of the hidden opportunities in sustainability. I don’t believe environmental sustainability and economic profitability are at odds – on the contrary! I am confident that businesses that are resource smart, customer-focused and environmentally sustainable also have the potential to create most economic wealth for their owners. These kinds of companies are now popping up like mushrooms, including Airbnb, PiggyBaggy, TaskRabbit, ZenRobotics, Ecovative, RePack and many others. I hope to take part in this development and help solve the wicked problems of our time.
In the future my aim is to specialize in design-driven innovations and in developing sustainable business models.
