Technopolis is launching a new service, Technopolis Online, which will increase the attractiveness and the visibility of Finnish high tech companies and create a window for investors to easily find potential Finnish investment targets. In conjunction, Technopolis is releasing its Q3 report on the state of the Finnish venture capital market.
Technopolis Online is a world class tool for international investors to find, contact and invest in Finnish high-tech companies. The database contains over 1,500 high tech companies, 155 investors and over 2,300 key people from the Finnish High-Tech ecosystem, which ranks at the top of innovation economies around the world. The key feature is the Investment Tracker, which currently lists investments, both public and private, into Finnish high tech companies from 1999 to today.
Will Cardwell, Director of Technopolis Development Services is clearly excited about the new service. “We started working on Technopolis Online more than a year ago with a goal to create the best information source about the Finnish high tech environment for international and local investors, as well as entrepreneurs. Inbound and outbound transparency is our singular goal, and we believe that transparency itself will lead to more international success for Finnish companies.”
A beta version of Technopolis Online was launched in April 2009: “During the closed beta, we’ve had more than 30 international investors testing Technopolis Online from over ten different countries. The feedback has been tremendous and has already resulted in a few investment cases”, Cardwell continues. For example, Nic Brisbourne of DFJEsprit in
