Out of 70 companies that applied to the program, Headai was one the chosen ones to participate in Kasvu Open’s and Nordea’s SUPERFINNS program. To meet the criteria for participating, the company has to have a scalable business model, proof of growth capability, and ambitious goals for going global. The companies with the most potential were chosen by a jury made up of Nordea executives and high-profile Finnish investors.
Kasvuopen’s news article lists all the companies that were chosen in the program. In the article, Vesa Riihimäki, Head of Nordea’s Startup & Growth unit, describes the selections:
“We decided to only pick the companies we believed to be capable of large-scale breakthroughs. That’s why we’re very happy with the results – a group of 29 growth hungry companies exceeded our expectations, said Vesa Riihimäki, head of Nordea’s Startup & Growth unit.”
