Finland's Dream Broker has been topping the growth charts with their online video solution. In 2012 they were the top of the charts with Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 in Finland, growing at 2,712%. They apparently have no sign of stopping, as they plan on hiring 25 new employees this autumn on top of their current 60 employees, bumping up its staff number by 40%.
”We are determined to continue our explosive expansion,” says Mika Ahokas, CEO of Dream Broker in a press release. “The key to our success is a skilled and diverse staff, and we want to recruit more of these innovative top individuals to our team. Hiring 25 new multi-talents is essential for our success, and also proof our commitment to continuous growth.”
Dream Broker is plugging companies into video in a new way. Rather than sharing guidelines in a paper format, long emails, in classroom trainings, Dream Broker helps companies' employees create their own videos, something they say increases efficiency and ease of communication.
The company already has a decent foothold in the Nordic countries, expanded from their home in Finland to Sweden at the end of 2012 and in Denmark in the spring of 2013. At the end of this year, Dream Broker is expanding to Oslo where they will hire a team of five to get a foothold, and increase from there.
The Nordics as a market is very important to us, and overall, we find local presence in our target countries essential to our success,” Ahokas says. “The decision to expand to Norway was clear and natural after we set up offices in Sweden and Denmark. This truly enables us to serve our clients locally throughout the Nordics. After the Nordic countries, we are set to expand towards the rest of Europe and the whole world.”
Dream Broker's revenue has been doubling yearly. The company was started in 2007, and by 2011 they were doing €1.5 million in revenue. In 2012 they posted revenue just under €3 million.
