Empowering Women Entrepreneurs in sparsely populated communities across northern Europe.
W-Power works with women entrepreneurs in sparsely populated areas across northern Europe and the Arctic rim, encouraging them to set-up, develop and grow their businesses. The project seeks to achieve this through capacity building and providing opportunities for transnational connections and learning.
W-Power Inspiring Women in Business Podcast shares the stories of some of the amazing women who are part of this project and their journeys in business.
My guest today is Marianne Hoppu, founder at Narskuttelu Oy based in Kitee, Finland.
Marianne has a background in Engineering and has lived in Kitee for over 10 years, before that spending time in the USA. She is now the manager of the family business Narskuttelu Oy which manufactures Xylitol nature’s own sweetener, which tastes like normal sugar but has much lower glycemic index. The main market for the products is surrounding Nordic countries and exporting to central Europe.
