Our 2013 survey is now up and running

The 2013 survey is now underway, and invitations to participate are being sent using traditional mail and email. Last year's survey turned out to be a great success both in terms of impact and participation. In the spring and summer of 2012 our survey was the first to examine the migration of former Nokia employees, and thanks to the many responses, we were able to contribute valuable information to this very important discussion.

The question then becomes, where will these engineers and managers be headed?

Where do international growth intentions come from? (Part I)

Growth entrepreneurship is very much on policy makers' minds and everyone wants us to have more of them. Therefore the first post of this blog looks at Finnish software firms' intentions to internationalize from day one. Armed with our surveys and statistical software, we have been chasing this issue for some time now.
