Today in Kuopio, BioGTS received the award for the fastest growing company in the regions of Central Finland, South and North Savo and South and North Karelia during the Kauppalehden Kasvajat (Kauppalehti Growers) tour.
The choice was based on the analysis of Kauppalehti’s Balance Consulting of companies in the region. According to the analysis, the growth of BioGTS has been quite rapid. Kauppalehti’s managing editor Jari Saario says BioGTS’ annualized growth for the last three years has been 970%.
BioGTS CEO Mika Rautiainen was happy to receive the award. “This feels great!”, says Rautiainen of this freshly received honor.
“We are honored by this recognition by the venerable jury, and believe that this honor shall benefit us in many ways regarding things like financiers, recruitment and perhaps customers as well,” development manager Annimari Lehtomäki says gratefully.
This annual networking tour for growth companies is organized now for the seventh time, and in addition to Kuopio, will also visit Oulu, Tampere, Turku and Helsinki this year. This year’s themes for the Kauppalehden Kasvajat tour are the glass ceilings of growth and the effects of enthusiasm on an entrepreneur’s ability to cope with their workload.
