Innovestor was founded in 2014 by our CEO Tommi Äijälä to help entrepreneurs succeed by being a great home for growth. Having started off as only a financial services company helping growth companies in their fundraising efforts, we have throughout the years evolved into the one of a kind player you see today.
Most notably when we in 2016 acquired Finnveras Vera Ltd seed fund that resulted in the creation of our venture capital investment arm taking our first steps towards not only being a financial services company, but now also a venture capital (VC) investor.
And in 2019 following the acquisition of Kasvun Roihu, we integrated a third function into our operations, namely as a builder of high caliber growth programs.
From our history we have learned that for companies to succeed, they need access to not only the capital that we as a VC invest, but also concrete know-how and networks. Aspects which the ecosystem we now have built provides.
