Steve Blank invests in two start-up companies in Finland

Renowned entrepreneur Steve Blank visited Finland last week for the Startup Sauna in Espoo – and was impressed.

The Startup Sauna program selected three winners from the batch which the Baltic Campalyst, and the Finnish companies Ovelin and Futureful. Ovelin is creating an app to facilitate learning to play the guitar. Futureful is building a predictive discovery engine, their mission being to empower users to discover the future through a personal filter to the web.

Startup Sauna takes two batches annually in the Spring and Fall. Each team invited to the Aalto Venture Garage is given an incentive grant of EUR 1500 to cover travel and accommodation costs during the program.
