BioGTS has received honorable mention on this year’s Kasvu Open growth company competition. The award was received by BioGTS’s CEO, Mika Rautiainen and Director for Business Development, Annimari Lehtomäki, in Kasvu Open Carnival today, on October 23, in Jyväskylä.
BioGTS is one of the selected companies to continue to receive Nordea Growth prize and business advisor expert services worth 20,000 € to increase financial capability. BioGTS and the other winners of Nordea Growth will receive the support of a sparring partner group, Growth Board, for a period of a year.
In addition, Kasvu Open and Team Finland has chosen BioGTS Ltd. plus 19 other companies having the most internationalization potential to the Going Global Runway Track. Going Global Runway Track consists of two internationalization days, where the chosen companies will network with Finnish international business experts and solve their own internationalization challenges. The main objective of the Going Global Runway Track is to work with the Finnish international business experts to refine the international plan.
Runway Track will be held in Espoo in November. The companies will be sparred by Jari Makkonen (B&B Advisors Shanghai), Jyrki Poikkimäki (VTT) and Marika Af Enehjelm (Finnish Venture Capital Association). Kasvu Open is a project for sparring eager to growth companies with growth experts in Finland. The word “kasvu” means growth in Finnish, and “open” summarizes the idea of the competition being open for every type of company and for any expert willing to share own knowledge on a pro bono basis.
