Headai has entered a one-year long EEX Journey development program, where an external advisory board built from leaders of global companies will bring strategic out-of-the-box thinking to boost Headai’s growth efforts. In addition to Headai, there are four other startups in the program – Kelluu, DroppX, Seppo, and No No No. In return, the advisors will get a chance to grow as leaders and develop competencies and a startup-mindset needed for renewal and collaboration.
“The Advisors are super motivated to help and develop themselves which bodes well for their large companies.”, says Tapio Peltonen, CEO & Founder of EEX.
