Our Story

Live Case Experiments

We build on several complimentary track records, shared discoveries and values, and a crystal-clear mission. We build on 20M€ worth of scientific programs on how to create business in the Digital Era. We aim at a global market launch of a scalable offering in 2020.

During a local pilot of EU’s eEurope program (eBRC of eTampere), we discovered that venture capitalists were losing their role as the key enablers in the 21st century. We learned that Financiers and Founders will need help in finding and preparing themselves for each other.

During the Global Venture Lab experiment, which followed, we were able to create, test and prove a number of disruptive business creation methods with colleagues from IIT Kharagpur and UC Berkeley. Some of these findings are manifested in the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship.

Call for Disruption

To our frustration, Founders still waste time in seeking Financiers prematurely, and vice versa. The orientation of Founders should be shifted to customers and the problems being solved, and the competences and resources needed to solve them. We realize that something fundamentally disruptive is required for game-changing in the way Founders and Financiers seek for each other.

Global Enabler was established to fundamentally change the way by which we create high-impact companies, globally. We started by disrupting the venture competition format in Finland. We successfully replaced an out-dated nation-wide “beauty contest” (Venture Cup) with a format where the jury participates in business creation with the participants (KasvuOpen.fi).

Pilot Stage Actions

Design and launch of Kasvu Open was literally the first order of business for Global Enabler. The feedback on the competition format, our Runway-to-Growth method, and the R2G events organized in Silicon Valley, by the participants, were critically important proof of concept. Our community’s first venture baby, Naava.io, emerged from the first season of Kasvu Open and has by now grown to a 30MEUR valuation. In 2018, KasvuOpen.fi received EU’s Enterprise Promotion Award (EEPA).

Helping IPP.vn boost the startup ecosystem in Vietnam in 2015-2018 enabled us to test and prove our approaches and methods on a cross-cultural national ecosystem level. By 2019, our algorithms for growth were proven and laid ground to introduce our digital platform and tools.

Getting Started

Combined, we’ve introduced disruptive products, concepts and companies to world markets. We’ve coached major corporations through transformation to growth. We’ve trained business creators and orchestrated business creation activities at ecosystem level. We have done what’s needed to get us started, but nothing compared to what we all can do together from here.

Starting in 2020, we’ll be ready to invite fellow Co-Owners to write the next chapter of this story.
