"If your company ever has a chance to apply a program like Kiuas Accelerator, YOU SHOULD DO IT."
I stated a year ago - If you don't trust yourself, who can you trust?
At Indoor Informatics, we always seek new opportunities to develop ourselves and business we do.
We've been open-minded for new industries to support by using our core expertise and knowledge. A good example of this is our own story. It started from the gyms, went through meeting / classroom optimization, and led us to work with outdoor parking areas.
This year we launched a new service, PlayPlus, for outdoor playground and fitness areas together with one of the leading equipment provider of outdoor play and fitness in Finland, LeikkiSet. Currently we are piloting the system with various Finnish cities and expecting results never seen before in this particular industry.
During the past years we've worked hard. Trying to do the best in behalf of our customers and partners. It seems good things happen to good people. It seems. In the beginning of the summer Elisa and her team contacted us. They were willing to see if Indoor Informatics would fit their famous startup program EEX Journey.
"The EEX journey deploys corporate leaders and key talents to help startup entrepreneurs as advisors. Over the journey you will grow as a leader and develop competencies and culture needed for cooperation."
Of course, we were delighted and wanted in. After all, Indoor Informatics have been and still is working with EXCELLENT advisors like Riina Salmimies, Jyrki Hannula and Olli Luukkonen. So we knew how valuable out of the box perspective can be given by these professionals with their experiences from other businesses.
Here we are. Our virtual Kick-Off is today and we get to meet other Advisors and Entrepreneurs. Once again, it's time to reveal our most darkest secrets to a bunch of totally new people. They all have long careers and rock-solid expertise in their personal field of business.
Dear readers, next I'd like to introduce you to our amazing team of advisors in EEX Journey:
We are delighted. It's again something totally new. Even we have worked with advisors before, we never have had as good structure to work which EEX Journey now provides us.
I give the full respect and thank you the team of EEX Journey and maybe even more Päivi, Juhani, Kalle and Sami who are willing to invest their time in us for the next 12 months. We seek to give you the best possible guidance into this highly interesting, inspiriting and sometimes surprising world of young entrepreneurs.
Aki Illikainen, CEO & Co-Founder of Indoor Informatics.
