Lassi’s story

Lassi Starck

It was a cold and dark November evening. Me and my brother were driving with the small Ford KA from Jyväskylä to my hometown, Iisalmi. I was driving and my brother was on Facebook. We were almost halfway there when my brother shouted: “Hey, here is a perfect job for you!” Our classmate Maria Häkkinen had shared Kasvun Roihu’s trainee advertisement on Facebook.

At home I started to examine what this mysterious Kasvun Roihu is. During this investigation I found out that the company had a significant role in Kasvu Open, of which I had heard a lot of positive things. Even though I didn’t know the company before, the fact that the company’s goal is to help Finnish companies to grow convinced me. In my job I want to help others to develop and improve their performance.


It is great that both – I and Kasvun Roihu – seem to think that the best way to help Finland is by helping one company at a time.

The future of Kasvun Roihu seems interesting! The first true steps of internationalization loom ahead of us and possibilities are limitless. We just have to decide which things to focus on. Personally I wish that I am able to reclaim my own place as a part of Roihu’s team every single day. I want to test my own abilities and potential and, step by step, shift my own role to the next level. In hope that in the future I could work among coaching and developing new products and services.

Working in a growth company has been a very instructive experience for me. I get to see every day how dedicated our team is to our work and customers. It is also interesting to see how growth is pursued and accomplished and how great amount of work it requires. It is great to be a part of this growth story.

The future shows where I and Kasvun Roihu are headed – so toward it and beyond.
