HELSINKI M&A BOOTCAMP, JANUARY 10 2020
We partnered with Gorilla Ventures and Fondia to bring the tech community together and explore exit strategies. Gorilla is the perfect partner for this exercise because their companies are built to sell. Co-founder Risto Rautakorpi cites a presentation I gave at the Klaus K Hotel in Helsinki in 2015 as the spark that flamed into Gorilla – and topic was, unsrurprisingly, Start with the Exit in Mind. Fondia law firm has been a pioneer in serving the tech community, and in particular, helping companies raise money and get acquired, with a large percentage of the work crossing borders.
