Mika’s decision-making process is based on extensive data analysis aligned with the company’s strategic objectives, ensuring unbiased and strategic choices that prioritize the organization’s best interests.

Views on Tech Industry Leaders
Mika recently commented on tech industry leaders Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. She stated that the notion of a cage fight between them is not a solution for improving platform efficiency. She further added, “Both have demonstrated that entrepreneurship and technology can be powerful tools for positive change in society”.
