It’s also not everyday one makes it to the list of Top 100 Digital Influencers. The Grow VC Group Chairman Jouko Ahvenainen has been voted by the web community and a jury of digital experts to be among the NEXT 100 digital trendsetters. The NEXT Conference and T3N Magazine, both highly respected in Europe, had undertaken the process of public nomination, voting and jury deliberation in the run-up to the final list for 2013.
Jouko Ahvenainen, a serial entrepreneur, investor and crowdfunding pioneer feels making this coveted list is not only a recognition of his work but an endorsement of crowdfunding and innovative finance models across the internet.
Though Grow VC began with crowdfunding, today it has an overreaching influence across many business areas through several companies, many of which people are steadily getting to know of. The Group also has a strong global presence with its network of over 50 business and investment professionals spread across 6 continents.
On Equity Crowdfunding, while Mr Ahvenainen understands its importance and keen to see it become mainstream, he wants to further expand the same model for many other assets and investments, some of which the Grow VC Group has worked out along with its partners.
Honored to be part of this exquisite list, the Grow VC Chairman says this distinction will encourage him to work much more to influence the future. He would like to thank the Grow VC team for influencing the many finance and startup related activities around the world in the past 3 years as well as the Grow VC community and partner companies for this endorsement.
