Welcome to Wemla! If you want to make a living doing what you love the most, without having to give up time spent away from work with loved ones, you have come to the right place.
Few of us have time to study business full-time whilst also working in our own field of expertise, so that is where we can step in. Maybe you have owned your own small or larger business for years already, or maybe you spend time at your current work, dreaming of entrepreneurship, being your own boss?
No matter what your background and starting point is, there is always something new to learn, to improve, to question, and to replace. We can help you by teaching entrepreneurial skills faster than formal educations last.
Our background is in business in very different industries. The Wemla Ab Oy board consists of three co-founders and owners, sisters Nina and Eva, and father Owe:
- Nina, our managing director, is the one you will meet here on the website and in social media. Nina has started from selling jewellery in an Etsy shop as a hobby, and is now also the owner of her own small business. She has a Master’s degree in science, majoring in biochemistry, and theoretical studies in medicine, but has added self-studies in business to her skills.
- Eva, our head of board, has studied business (Master’s degree) in Helsinki, Finland as well as in Nova Scotia, Canada. Eva’s expertise is strategy, marketing and sales development in global enterprises in industrial goods, where she is employed full-time.
- Owe, our supportive member of the board, is retired now, but holds a degree in mercantile studies and made his career in ship supplies, and removals. In his youth, he lived and worked a few years in Germany in the Lübeck and Travemünde area, and continued in ship supplies after moving back home. Both industries have given him a solid, hands-on understanding of logistics as well as infrastructure in different countries. He has also seen how sales as a practice has changed over the decades.
We bring very different perspectives to the mix and hope you will find it useful.
Wemla was registered in spring 2018 after which collaboration with a graphic designer began, so now in autumn 2018 we are finally ready to start growing with you on our own journey. If you have feedback to share or requests to make, please don’t hesitate to contact us. That’s why we are here.
