Helsinki based startup, Smarp, is on the rise. With major client companies in Finland and the UK, Smarp's social business tools and services, and especially their SmarpShare - Service, have been in high demand.
It's a sweet idea actually. According to their researches, more than half of employees feel like they could publish company related content into their personal social media, such as LinkendIn, if only they were encouraged to do so from the highs of the chain-of-command. That's where Smarp steps in, in the form of a game of some sort.
Helsinki-based Tribe Studios was accepted into Tekes' Young Innovative Companies program, picking up the largest chunk of their private funding from Frontier, the consulting agency that has helped over 70 Finnish companies enter and establish businesses in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. This is Frontier's first significant investment, at €55,000, which is an interesting move for the firm.
We've covered Tribe Studio's product, Dramagame, for some time now. Their game platform was designed for their role-playing game concept, and has also pivoted into the educational and entertainment space.
