Mentor Ville Karttunen
For alumni

‘The students I have met will do well in their careers, I’m not at all worried about that’ – Ville Karttunen is a mentor for students at Aalto University

A desire to help others made Ville Karttunen, Head of New Ventures at Caruna, become a mentor for students. Back when he was a young student, he did not have the courage to seek mentoring although he would have benefited from it. Ville Karttunen is currently mentoring a master’s student at Aalto University. They meet about once a month to discuss working life from the younger person’s perspective.
