Our story

For the first time, we stepped on the soil of Southeast Asia in Thailand in 2004. It was love at first sight and our dream was born; build a life where we can live between two places and do business together as entrepreneurs.  

In 2009-2010 we spent a sabbatical year in Bangkok, Thailand and explored every single Southeast Asian country: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. 

After the return to Finland and some twenty years of career as salaried employees in 2012, it was time to start our own business. 

We created first Stoorisoppi, an online shop of ready-made articles and then Valuehammerers, a company providing communication, information and research services about Southeast Asian markets and societies. 

Our domicile is in Finland and since 2013 we’re located in Southeast Asia.

"It took almost ten years to make our dream come true, but we made it. Now we'd like to assist you to make your targets to come true."
