Growth Tour to Silicon Valley in January 2017

24th-28th of January, 2017 in Silicon Valley

Kasvu Open Gaselli Award was a prize trip to Silicon Valley between 24. – 28.1.2017 for ten companies who have great potential for growth and were in the Kasvu Open 2016 finals. The purpose of the trip was to help the companies to build their network in Silicon Valley and also to boost their international growth.

Agenda in Silicon Valley
The schedule in Silicon Valley included meetings with companies who already had grown (i.e. Risto Lähdesmäki, Idean), meetings with investors (i.e. Shawn Flynn and Micke Wendell) and meetings with Finns who live in Silicon Valley (i.e. Pekka Pärnänen and Eero Teerikorpi). During the trip we also got familiar with organizations which are important for entrepreneurs when entering American markets (i.e. Dottir and Nordic Innovation House).
