Our story

Wellmo’s founder Jaakko Olkkonen got personally interested in wellness and the way in which our own habits impact our wellbeing roughly 10 years ago. He was taking a sabbatical from his executive role at Nokia, and realised he needed to make changes to his own habits. Upon his return to work, Jaakko got into health tech and lead Nokia’s Wellness business for several years leading a team of 60 people before 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 Niskanen, a lead developer working in Jaakko’s team. Wellmo licensed Nokia’s Wellness Diary mobile application, which had over 1 million downloads, and started to develop a business around it.
