Our story

Wellmo’s founder Jaakko Olkkonen had worked for years in IT and strategic business development, before he got interested in wellness, and the way in which our own habits impact our wellbeing. He lead Nokia’s health and wellness business for several years with a team of 60 people and co-operated with other digital health pioneers, such as Pfizer, GSK, Microsoft Health Solutions, Google, Philips, Humana, United Health and Kaiser-Permanente.

When Nokia closed down the unit as part of its business restructuring, Jaakko saw the enormous potential within health tech, and decided to found Wellmo together with Sampo Juustila, a lead developer working in Jaakko’s team. Wellmo licensed Nokia’s Wellness Diary mobile application, which had over one million downloads, and started to develop a business around it.

Today, Wellmo helps numerous companies in Europe to bring to market digital health services that strike the right chord with the target audience. We work hard to help our customers to offer motivating services that bring real health value to their users. Wellmo platform is developed continuously with special emphasis on features that enable even smarter services for its customers in the future. Ability to utilize artificial intelligence to produce more specific segmentations and more relevant feedbacks, are some of the current R&D focus areas.
