Nordic Business Group was founded in December 2008 by Hans-Peter Siefen and Jyri Lindén. The company operated until November 2011 under the name Finnish Community of Entrepreneurship.
Since 2012, Nordic Business Forum Oy has been a subsidiary company of Nordic Business Group. The other subsidiary of Nordic Business Group is Nordic Business Investments Oy, which concentrates on real estate development.
Nordic Business Forum Oy’s revenue in 2015 reached 4.8 M€ while the revenue of the whole group was 11.1 M€. In January 2013, a professional board of directors was organized to support the implementation of the company’s ambitious growth and internationalization strategy.
Nordic Business Forum’s first event was organized in 2010 and over the years the annual main event has grown to be one of the most significant business seminars in Europe. Our team includes 19 full-time employees. We have offices in Jyväskylä and Helsinki in Finland, in Tallinn, Estonia, and Stockholm, Sweden. In addition, we have one full-time representative in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Back in 2011, Nordic Business Forum Oy set a 10-year goal of developing the annual main event into one of the most noteworthy business seminars in the world. Step by step we are pursuing to reach that goal by 2021.
It is very important to us to keep in mind why we do what we do every day. That is why we pursue to deliver value in everything we do. With every blog post or email we write, or an event or a meeting we hold, we aspire to identify what is the value we’re giving to our clients and other stakeholders.
Our mission is to encourage entrepreneurial mindset among organizations and people. We believe that entrepreneurship keeps the societies going and entrepreneurial mindset keeps the companies going. People with the entrepreneurial mindset are life-long learners who strive for personal development.
Our goal is to offer unique training experiences at reasonable prices.
Creating enriching interaction
We support open collaboration and positive relationships and pursue to create a healthy and enriching environment for networking in our events.
According to cross-generational thinking, we didn’t inherit this world from our parents, we merely lease it from our children. This also applies to our way of doing responsible business.
Inspiration for Two
In 2011 Nordic Business Forum Oy made a commitment to voluntary service in entrepreneurship education called Inspiration for Two. According to this commitment the company promises to give a day of entrepreneurship education to a student for every ticket sold.
Nordic Business Forum also donates tree plants in order to compensate the computational carbon footprint of the main event.
