Finnish growth companies know what they are doing but they do not necessarily understand or utilize all the possibilities of digitalization when they are scaling their business globally. Kasvu Open makes it possible for us to meet thousands of growth-hungry companies which we can enlighten about these possibilities.

Together with Innovestor and other partners we are continuously developing the [Grow to Market] process. Development can also be seen in growth companies leaving their application to these programs. The motivation level and quality of the companies is constantly improving.

Innovestor’s wide networks show that they have ability to cooperate and it is nice to work with people who are capable of cooperation. In fact there is no point in working with those who aren’t capable of that.
