Nordic Business Group, the creator of one of Europe’s most significant business conferences, Nordic Business Forum, has invested 150 000€ in Treamer Oy which plans to create the world’s largest peer-to-peer marketplace for local everyday chores and tasks.
“We believe that Treamer represents the future and will disrupt the current paradigm of working, both here in Finland and globally”, says Hans-Peter Siefen, co-founder of Nordic Business Group. “When Treamer launched its iPhone app, we tried it immediately and the user experience and service quality blew us away”, states co-founder Jyri Linden. “Once we became regular users, it did not take much time before we decided to invest.”
Along with to adding Nordic Business Group’s investor list, Treamer also appointed Peter Sazonov as CEO, and strengthened its board consisting now of Will Cardwell, Tatu Koistinen, Heimo Hakkarainen, Miikka Mäkitalo (CMO), and Hannu Alakangas.
The founder of the company, Matias Mäkitalo, will concentrate on implementing brand and product strategies. As Chief Design Officer he will drive the incorporation of the viewpoint of youth into the Treamer strategy.
“I am really excited to take the CEO role, and look forward to working with the team and the new board to lead us to international markets,” says Peter. “By continuing to build the team and company culture we believe that we can create exceptional growth over the next 12 months.”
“The Treamer experience can have a profound impact on the well-being of young people around the world as they learn the value of working, while at the same time delighting both consumer and business customers. They have the killer combination of an amazing team, strong network of supporters and a strong and positive business idea”, says board member Will Cardwell.
Treamer Oy is a startup founded in Helsinki July 2015 with the purpose of building the world’s biggest peer-to-peer marketplace for local everyday chores and tasks. The company connects families and SMBs to the trusted and enthusiastic Treamers, local hard-working and caring millennials to provide help whenever needed, 24/7. The two sides of the market connect via easy-to-use smartphone application that makes constant communication possible, resulting in ultra-fast recruitment process and simple salary payment to take care of all legislative labour costs and documentation. Today the service is loved by over 200 daily users, and the company is soon launching internationally.
