We at Tietoa Finland have strong growth ambitions and plans for global market entry. While our team does not have all the skills needed for this, we used Boardio to find advisors with experience, skills and knowledge relevant to our needs.
The search process was smooth and the result was above our expectations. In a short period of time, we received applications from several highly experienced individuals and now have two working as our advisors.
Boardio started to search for an advisor to help us on the challenges of growth. We had a high level of standards and required, among other things, managerial experience in our industry. The first applicants were good but not yet sufficient for our needs. Boardio continued to search until they found a really good candidate with whom we are now working with.
I can highly recommend Boardio to any company that needs honest and experienced external views to support business growth.
We started to look for individual advisors from Boardio, but while we got so many contacts we decided to set up an advisory board. At the moment our advisory board has five members, four of which we met through Boardio. I would recommend Boardio to any startup that wants to expand their expertise and networks.
While two out of three founders in our company are from South Korea, we wanted to expand our network in Finland.
Forethink team was looking for external board members through Boardio. Searching for advisors and starting communication with them was convenient and quick. Forethink team found two new board members within 3 months. They are now contributing to Forethink's growth in a crucial role.
Boardio is a quick and easy way to match with potential advisors for your specific needs. A lot better than using a general social platform like Linkedin as in Boardio you know that the other people on the platform are open for advisor positions
I would recommend Boardio for any startup company that knows where they need help. It is the fastest way that I know to get introduced to potential advisors outside of your own networks.
Aalto University seeks for advisors in its projects aiming into start-ups. We have received excellent candidates through Boardio and continue its use in the future.
I would absolutely recommend Boardio also to others. As an electronic tool it is a good complement for the innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
We have established a relationship with a new advisor through Boardio that could potentially be our partner in Finland. This advisor shares our vision and has more experience than us, we see that this can go well.
I think Boardio is a good way to seek advisors who complement skills you want to grow your business and expertise.
Serendipity in action - that's Boardio! We found our CFO through Boardio, so for us, Boardio was a huge success!
