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. Our findings are manifested in the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship.

Call for Positive Disruption

To our frustration, Founders waste everyone’s time by approaching Financiers with incomparable data, overestimating prospects and hiding shortcomings. This compromises and prolongs the building of trust between Founders and Financiers.

Global Enabler was established to write a new, better code, on how to create global high-impact, high-growth enterprises. In our approach, the orientation of Founders is shifted from Financiers to Customers, the problems being solved, and the acceptance and resources necessary to close deals.

We started by disrupting the paradigm in Finland, in 2011. We successfully replaced a decade-old,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, in 2011-2013. The feedback on the competition format, our awarded Runway-to-Growth method, and R2G events organized in Silicon Valley, by the participants, were critically important proof of concept for our disruptive new enterprise creation algorithm.

In 2018, Kasvu Open received the Internationalisation Award of the President of Finland and the European Enterprise Promotion Award (EEPA). Helping IPP.vn boost the startup ecosystem in Vietnam in 2015-2018 enabled us to test and prove concept at cross-cultural national ecosystem level.

Global Enabler’s anchor test case, and critical longitudinal proof of conceptNaava.io, emerged from the first season of Kasvu Open, in 2011, and had by 2018 raised – enabled by our algorithm – over 10MEUR and reached a 30MEUR valuation.

Since 2018 we have worked to create digital services around our unique, tested and proven algorithm, to emerge as a strong, new breed digital business creation platform. After total proof of concept via pilots engaging 100+ companies from 20+ countries from 5 continents, our first digital tool, HippoMeter™, will be ready for market launch by Q4/2020.

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.
