Harri Paananen is the City of Espoo’s Head of Economic Development. He has a background both in innovation management research as well as private sector work, ranging from consulting and business development to marketing and sales in Finland as well as internationally. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, he has naturally also dabbled in startups. Growing up Harri played a lot of Sim City and is currently hooked on Cities Skylines, although he is terribly frustrated by the lack of sustainable urban development policies available in these games
