Speaker Bio

My name is Iida Loukkaanhuhta and I am the first female CEO of the world’s leading hackathon organiser Junction. Not only that but at the age of 26 I’m also one of the youngest to hold the position.

In a world of ever evolving technology and as humanity going through the fourth industrial revolution it is key to find diverse people from diverse communities to navigate the changes. This is one of my key priorities. If I help the entire Junction team to adapt and mold the changes going on I have succeeded.

Hackathons are the greatest platform for change. The power of global communities united in pursue of revelation and innovation.

Every single great innovation has started as a revelation and that is the core of hackathons.

Let’s work together. Let’s be fearless in front of the challenges of tomorrow and find the solutions to combat them.
