Suomalaiset startupit Lontoossa 1968

Suomalainen startup-toiminta alkoi ennen muita jo 50 vuotta sitten, kun Helsingin kauppakorkeakoulun ylioppilaskunta puheenjohtajanaan Lauri Noreila vei Finnpartnerilla suomalaisyritykset Lontooseen keikalle.

Finnfocus aloitti hyvin Lontoossa

LONTOO, 7.10.1968 (OLLI KIVINEN)

 

Taustana Tower esittelivät englantilaismannekiinit suomalaista vapaa-ajan muotia Finnpartnerin kannella: Lois James (vas.), Ann Milling, Ann Skevington ja Pamela Lovelock.

KAIKKI Englannin ilmaston mahdottomuutta koskevat puheet häpeään jättänyt lämmin auringonpaiste auttoi maanantaina Finnfocus-messujen ensimmäistä päivää.

Iltaan mennessä saattoivat sekä järjestäjät että ulkopuoliset todeta, että ainakin alkuunpääsy sujui erinomaisesti.

Ensimmäiseen päivään sisältyi luonnollisesti kokolailla improvisointia ja lieviä vaikeuksiakin, mutta tärkeimpien kohtien arvostelu osoittautui myönteiseksi; tyylikkäässä näyttelyssä riitti kävijöitä.

Maanantain varsinainen kohokohta oli Lontoon Cityn ylipormestarin Sir Gilbert Inglefieldin käynti Tower-sillan alapuolelle ankkuroidussa m/s Finnpartnerissa.

Jester @ Vertical accelerator fall batch 2017

The Vertical accelerator fall batch 2017 is a great combination of 15 talented and passionate teams! We explored the anatomy of a perfect team with these multicultural teams.

Anatomy of a perfect team

Big part of the soul of a startup is the team – founders, management, employees, partners, investors – people. Our teams worked on the anatomy of a perfect team and came up with this list:

Share
trust
common goals and purpose
communication
leader brings best out of team
conflict 
handling
passion
mix of skills
roles
encouragement
respect

 

Do you agree? Is this your perfect team?

The list above is a dream list of 15 passionate teams. As it describes the perfect team for these teams and people it most probably lacks some of the features you would include in a perfect team. Even though we can find common features in perfect team descriptions it is still only you who can decide your own perfect team. Please do so!

Vertical accelerator fall batch 2017

The Vertical fall batch 2017 is a great combination of talent, technology, cultures and passionate teams! It is fascinating to work with this diversity of cultures and people and realise how identical the individual challenges are, when pressure grows big enough.

The 15 fall batch startup’s are focused either on health or renewable materials. The 6 renewable materials teams are specially selected by Stora Enso and the objective with these teams is to offer Stora Enso hands on experience of working with startups – to change the leadership culture in the corporation.

The Vertical program is a four-month hands-on accelerator program that digs deep into customer excellence, team excellence and impact. Startups learn to work in collaboration with real corporations like Samsung and Stora Enso and get the valuable contacts.

Soul Of Startup

Many angels say that the team is the core of a startup – they even call it the soul of the startup. This in mind, Jester customized the team excellence training for Vertical to suit the needs of the startups in three separate modules:

Team Excellence 1: Anatomy of a perfect team

Team Excellence 2: Common Purpose and Goals

Team Excellence 3: Conflict Handling and Communications

We are excited to work with these great startup teams on Team Excellence as part of the Vertical family. Stay tuned for more experiences from the modules.
