Some months ago we announced a partnership with Åland’s government-backed venture capital company, Ålands Utvecklings Ab. Now this partnership has resulted in a new investment case on our platform, HelioZenit! What makes HelioZenit’s funding round particularly interesting is that Ålands Utvecklings Ab will be subscribing 50% of the offering, i.e. they will be matching all investment with their own when the round succeeds.
Speaking of VC-backed cases, Transfluent is backed by Finnish VC Vision+ which is increasing its stake in the current offering. Good stuff!
The ten campaigns currently open on our platform have been very visible in several channels, but if you’re yearning for more, we have a couple of events coming up in the next two weeks: next Tuesday, we have our next pitching webinar (register here) and a breakfast event at the new startup hub Maria 01 in Helsinki on Monday the 29th.
In other matters, our blog this week has content on e.g. how to do the Internet-of-Things “right”. Furthermore, let’s not forget that Fitness Village’s share issue closed succesfully last week; congratulations Fitness Village and its investors! Don’t forget to scroll down for a status report on all open funding rounds.
Have a good rest of the week,
Lasse Mäkelä, CEO
