I popped into Helsinki Hub for a quick breakfast meeting on Tuesday morning to hear how Founder2be is looking to help talented individuals find each other and form startups. The company is only two months old and Oliver Bremer the founder has some novel ideas for growth of both the company and worldwide entrepreneurial ecosystem starting with small steps of course.
The biggest technology website reviewing and reporting on technology startups and growth entrepreneurship from the Nordic and Baltic countries covered Founder2be really well on their blog (click here to view) and just the other week Scandinavian Startups covered them. There is no point rehashing what has been well covered in the other articles; however it was of interest that Founder2be are looking to also organise offline meetups where people thinking of forming startups could chat to others and form their team.
I sent Founder2Be as spotting to Springwise but they noted it was not unique in its concept and perhaps this was due to with my previous spotting HumanIPO “Estonian HumanIPO seeks to help gather momentum for startups of any kind.” It is great to see the startup ecosystem increasing and Founder2be will be of real interest to students who are thinking of forming startups.
Metropolia needs to be more active in this area and I know Metropolia Entrepreneurship Society founder Riina Ruuponen is working behind the scenes on some great ideas. In Metropolia Business School we have plans to work with Nuori Yrittäjyys (Junior Acheivement Finland) to provide students with an easy way to form an official company simply without the red tape. If you are interested in entrepreneurship in Metropolia then join Riina and her fans on Facebook and watch out for some upcoming events.
