Nelli’s Fifth Corner Company’s YOU app has helped tens of thousands of people around the world to live healthier lives. The application has convinced e.g. the renowned Chef Jamie Oliver, who is also an expert at YOU.

YOU app encourages people towards healthy lifestyles by making small daily choices. Psychologists have praised this approach, since an overnight holistic lifestyle renovation is hard and only few succeed in it. Small actions are the ones that count.

Nelli says Aalto University gave a good start to entrepreneurship. Internationality has been present all the time. Nelli did her Master’s thesis abroad, and still lives San Francisco. At Aalto, the possibility to multidisciplinarity attracted, too: combining technical sciences with business sciences was fruitful.

'I loved student life,' Nelli laughs.

Who wouldn’t?
