Curious about Evernote and how it can make your everyday more productive? Try it out here!

Ilkka Paananen
CEO, Supercell


Supercell is the Helsinki-based mobile games developer behind Clash of Clans, Hay Day, Boom Beach and Clash Royale. Since its founding in 2010, Supercell’s games have amassed 100 million daily players and remain in the global top ten years after launch – in June 2016, it became the first European technology startup to reach a valuation of $10 billion.


Ilkka Paananen and his team of game-makers (literally) are on a mission to embed gaming into people’s everyday lives. They can serve as an outlet from the real world, where we switch into to play together, build clan communities and interact beyond the gaming experience.

Supercell is known for their flat-management structure. While successful organizations face greater temptation to grow quickly, Ilkka and his team believe in growth at a low, steady pace with a deep sense for sensibility. They believe in creating environments that embrace failure. Without failure and risk, there is no innovation. And without innovation, there is little growth and success.
