Lunch Box Forum: The Jarvela Brothers - Hard work, skill and chance

By Administrator | 28 April 2016

On Wednesday 27 April 2016, concrete entrepreneurs Jouni and Sami Jarvela shared their story with a keen SLQ Business Studio Lunch Box Forum audience. If you were unable to attend the forum or would like to experience it again, check out this STORIFY to see what happened.

About the Jarvela Brothers and Pop Concrete
Brothers Jouni and Sami are the co-founders and owners of Pop Concrete; a design and manufacturing company that produce anything from lighting to bench tops. The firm has experienced a rapid rise in business over the past few years, asserting itself as one of Australia’s top concrete product manufacturers. The brothers have recently expanded Pop Concrete to three separate companies – Pop Concrete which predominately produces bench tops, vanities and wall panels, Pop Plus which designs furniture, lighting and products, and Pop Concrete Supplies & Training – distribution of materials for concrete manufacture and training.

About the talk
Hard work, skill & chance and how they influence success in business and life. Golfing great Gary Player has famously said, “The harder I practise, the luckier I get”. This same sentiment is seen and acknowledged by business owners, entrepreneurs, sports people and artists across the globe. At Pop Concrete we’ve worked very hard and experienced our fair share of luck ranging from seemingly small insignificant situations to large business / life changing events. We want to share our business journey and some of the experiences where hard work, skill and luck have played a large role in our business over the last 5 years and how we’ve learnt to capitalise on these experiences and see our business grow.
