Finlandia Foundation National Interview with HackerOne CEO MÃ¥rten Mickos

MÃ¥rten Mickos is a native of Finland who came to Silicon Valley in 2003, and found success as a serial entrepreneur in the tech world. Six years ago he became CEO of HackerOne, the world’s leading vendor of hacker-powered security. “I had been dreaming about Silicon Valley since the late ’80s; to me this was paradise. I joke and say that I thought Silicon Valley would be the promised land. It’s even more than that—it’s the overpromised land. If you don’t learn to exaggerate, you’re lost.”
