@Anders: E-business brings growth

Feb. 15, 2013 Anders Innovations

Our February events so far have been all about online business and encouraging young entrepreneurs.

In January, Ministry of Employment and the Economy's work group on the future of digital economy proposed a decade-long growth program for Finland.

Growth will be sought in the perspective of the digital age. Business models based on new technology have proven to be the most effective way to increase business competitiveness and economic growth.

 

Perspectives on e-business

The report’s conclusions seem rational. Yet this begs the question, how to build successful business models on top of modern online technologies?

Answers to this question were presented in two Anders Inno’s events, organized in February.

Anders Inno’s Peter Silvennoinen presented an e-commerce system implemented for Finnish meat wholesaler Lihatukku Tamminen. The service is based on a new kind of e-business concept: online shoppers get home deliveries of high-quality meat.
