MG: The things I liked about working in Nokia

I’m sure many of you would agree that the excitement and sense of accomplishment we all felt just before we released a new product was out of this world. From the first time you held a proto in your hands and got to play with the latest tech, to the first pictures taken with an N95 8GB, to the amazing music coming out of the 5800 or the fashion sense of the L’amour collection: these are things that will be embedded in our personalities for the rest of our lives.

With all these in mind, three years ago, I decided to leave the comfort of a steady job to pursue a long-held dream of mine: launching a company.
