Jyväskylä Business Rally 2017

Venture Development Finland, together in cooperation with the City of Jyväskylä, organized for the third time the Business Rally event concurrently with the WRC Neste Rally Finland in Jyväskylä. During the event, early- and mid-stage firms present their businesses to a group of invited Finnish and international venture capitalists and business angels. This time around, international investors arrived all the way from Switzerland, Germany, U.S. and China.

The Business Rally event included our 28th Funding Panel, where a total of eight firms pitched their businesses to an enthusiastic crowd of investors. The firms were Almerin Oy, BrightCharger Oy, Crazy Town Oy, Happy Day Marketing Oy, Opinsys Oy, Recenart Oy, Spinnova Oy and Taction Enterprises Oy. Heated discussions between firms and potential investors carried on for the whole day. After the long Funding Panel day, the investors and firms departed for a cruise of lake Päijänne. The day culminated in the Harju City Special Stage of the WRC Neste Rally of Finland.

The investors praised the well-organized event, the participating firms and the great effort by the City of Jyväskylä to support local growth-oriented firms. The discussions between investors and firms resulted in many follow-up discussions, which are to be carried out soon. Please feel free to click on the links below for news articles on the event:
