In Openings, Aalto University Vice President, Professor Eero Eloranta notes that the University has managed to successfully realise its national special task. He views the student body and the student-established entrepreneurship society Aaltoes as important factors in this and says that their significance cannot be emphasised too much.

This issue’s main article examines the entrepreneurial mind and how the University can support it. Light on this subject is shed by Assistant Professor of High-growth Entrepreneurship Mikko Jääskeläinen, serial entrepreneur and mentor Kaija Pöysti as well as Martim Gois, who is finishing his studies and has just launched his own business.

Entrepreneur, angel investor Timo Ahopelto believes in an entrepreneurial renaissance and stresses how important groups of friends are along this path.

The Who column travels to the Paris design bureau of Ahonen & Lamberg. Graphic designers Anna Ahonen and Katariina Lamberg met as students and now work closely together like a married couple of sorts.

In there introduces us to three entrepreneurs, Kristo Ovaska, Annina Koskiola and Pekka Laurila, who view the world as their market area.

Travel entrepreneur Johanna VierrosColumn recounts how an idealist’s unrelenting anguish can lead to the formation of a company.

The pictures of the main article and the cover are from Kalle Kataila's series Landscapes and Contemplations, an analysis of landscape and meditation.

Aalto University Magazine is available on the campuses of Aalto University. An electronic facsimile is available on issuu.com. This issue is entirely in Finnish, but English translations of some articles are posted online at aalto.fi/magazine.

Specialised networks to provide information security

We all know that any information shared on the internet is not necessarily private. However, specialised networks with mobile access would offer isolation from the internet, and therefore, better information security.
