Finland-based green economy advisory and collaboration platform SOLVED has raised 500 000 euros in its latest funding round.

The investors included Avanto Ventures, LC Ventures and Pöyry, as well as six new business angels, among them David Kirp and SOLVED’s chairman of the board, Pia Erkinheimo.

“SOLVED accelerates problem solving by ensuring a fast and trustworthy way to identify the right experts for the challenges and engage them on a scalable co-creation platform,” Erkinheimo says.

The company’s expanding network consists of around 3 000 experts from 70 countries, who have contributed to hundreds of sustainability projects worldwide to date.

“We believe that the future of work is flexible collaboration of multidisciplinary teams on digital platforms,” says Santtu Hulkkonen, CEO of SOLVED. “Our responsibility is to fight climate change together. SOLVED speeds up co-creation between different stakeholders, and helps to find the right resources and collaboration tools.”

The Finnish company has raised 1.1 million euros in total in two funding rounds and will use the latest financing to expand further in Europe and the US. Earlier this year, SOLVED was also selected for Business Finland’s Young Innovative Company funding programme.
