OUR STORY.

First marketing agency in Finland dedicated to startup companies.

San Francisco Oy was founded in 2009 and in the beginning helped dozens of Finnish consumer brands to get started on Facebook. Since 2010 the company has been focusing solely on startup companies. San Francisco holds an AA credit rating (Soliditet) and you can find its registry information on Finder.

Founder & CMO: Juhani Polkko

Juhani founded his first company at the age of 18. After working a total of 7 years in consumer electronics and entertainment software distribution, he lived in Silicon Valley to help the first wave of Finnish mobile content companies to conquer the U.S. market. He founded his first technology startup in San Francisco in 2005 - a venture that ultimately failed.

Back in Finland he consulted several startup companies and also experienced working for a big corporation - heading Nokia's mobile advertising sales in the Nordic countries. Since 2009 Juhani has been teaching Swedes to do marketing with San Francisco Oy's first major startup success story, an advertising technology company Freespee.

From January 2013 the San Francisco team has started to grow - we currently employ 5+ professionals locally in Finland, and have a wide network of freelancers in all corners of the world.
