Infinity was born out of the idea that there are no limits. Anything is possible for those who dare to dream, to think differently and to make things happen. Our job is to create better futures and to help companies succeed by giving them a better understanding of the end customers and their needs,” summarises Mikko Kämäräinen, CEO of the Infinity group.
