Karoliina Kauhanen

Moi! Glad to meet you. I am co-founder and CMO at Commu. I have a background in working in startups and with angel investors, digital marketing and community building. In Commu, I take care of our marketing, investors and users.


Why is Commu important for me?
 I have experienced severe loneliness many times during my life and do not wish it on anyone. If every second adult experiences loneliness in their daily lives, we need to take action. I believe helping as an action is one of the best ways to meet new people and build support networks as well as take care of social sustainability.
