This of course is a great news, not only for Mr. Ahvenainen and Mr. Lampinen, but for the entire Crowd Valley team. In fact, as Crowd Valley’s CEO Markus Lampinen pointed out “the fact that Crowd Valley appears twice on that list is the result of a great teamwork, focused on develop a sustainable and transparent financial industry”.
Jouko Ahvenainen, the company’s Chairman, commented: “ It is great to be on that list. We’re committed to expanding crowdfunding also to other sectors than only startups, to support different types of actors from the financial industry and ultimately to contribute to making crowdfunding not only an innovation, but a new paradigm shift”.
