Katriina Anttila is the Chief Growth Officer at Good Ventures.

She has worked with Finnish companies for 15 years, focusing on growth, innovation, and internationalization, with the last 10 years dedicated to sustainable growth in responsible companies or those aspiring to be. She gained her framework for international business from the Helsinki School of Economics, and 10 years at Trainers' House Oyj taught her nearly everything about change management. Five years as the CEO of Kasvuryhmä, along with a couple of years on Gaia's board, deepened her experience in sustainable growth.
