Business meeting program for a structural engineering company

"Structural engineering company Poka 3D was active in Scandinavian countries and we proceeded to develop Finland with the help of Markus Pitkänen from InnoConnections. Out of a longlist of 30 companies he arranged us seven very well fitting meetings in Finland. As structural engineering is a long-term business Poka 3D appreciated the quality of the longlist and the meeting companies. Markus also helped Poka 3D on the road, shared his knowledge on the Finnish business and local culture, as well as participated in the meetings. Markus also took meeting notes, so I could concentrate on discussing with people and answering their questions. The notes were very useful when I prepared my meeting documentation and followed up on the companies upon return to home. I highly recommend Markus for his work in developing B2B contacts in Finland."
Poka3D - CEO & Founder Mr. Gabor Poka

Virtual meeting program for an electric and automation installation company

"Insta Globe Engineering (IGE) first did a market entry project with InnoConnections in cooperation with a public export development organization. After a successful project, IGE decided to look for further contacts from Finland directly with InnoConnections. Starting from the preparation of meetings via very efficient summaries of potential leads, InnoConnections' coordination of meetings achieved excellent results. The meetings are really efficient as both parties already know each other through InnoConnections introductions and meeting company profiles. The export development project lead into 12 meetings and 9 prospects out of a list of 35 leads which is just an excellent result. The cooperation was always very professional on a high level of precision and appreciation. IGE considers InnoConnections as "Super Service Provider" and we plan to look into other markets with the help of InnoConnections."
Insta Globe Engineering - Sales & Business Development Manager Mr. Patrick Gerber

Distribution partner search for LED luminaries

"Target of the project with InnoConnections was to find suitable distribution partners for five different countries. InnoConnections helped us to browse through numerous different companies and handpicked candidates fitting best in our pre-set requirements and wishes. Meetings with chosen companies were arranged as very tight and effective packages logistically and schedule wise.

The end result was a series of very successful meetings.

”Modexa needed help to evaluate the suitability for our business concept in the Finnish market. We started off by asking InnoConnections to do a market research report focusing on similarities and differences between the Swedish and Finnish market in regards to our business. Based on the findings in the detailed report it was decided that InnoConnections would arrange a series of C-level meetings with prospective customers. The trip to Finland for these meetings was very professionally arranged. The right decision makers from the customers attended and were well prepared, making the trip worthwhile. A next step is planned for 2014."

"Business meetings in Finland for our company were organized for the second time. The first experience in 2012 did not suit us well, but the 2013 experience with Markus and InnoConnections was superb - everything was professionally arranged.  We and our potential clients were well prepared for the meetings thanks to Markus. The meeting companies already knew a lot about our fields of activities, so from the beginning of the meetings we started with negotiations and did not spent much time for introductions."
