Option TI, a growth company from Chile, seeks a foothold in Helsinki, Finland. The company collaborates on learning solutions and platform with Sanoma, a Finnish editorial, and works on a demo project with Outotec, a global leader in consulting to the mining industry. Option TI aims to grow in Finland to become one of the leaders of its field in Helsinki.
Option TI is dedicated to providing software as a service and software development for its customers. It serves as an incubator for new software development projects primarily aimed at generating services. It’s constantly seeking opportunities to create joint ventures in order to continue the development of creative and innovative ideas all over the world.
– The opportunity we have seen in Finland and in the Nordic countries in general is that there is a need for software experiments, says Mr. Fernando Oliver, CEO at Option.
However, the high costs and the risks related to the projects are limiting the development. With its flexible service model and process, Option supports the companies both in the development of software and software services as well as in the testing of new applications and ideas.
– Many large companies do not have labs that enable them to perform betas or demos of software, both for themselves and for their end customers. A collaborative model attracts us, since its opens up the opportunity to create innovative solutions with high value for these companies and their customers, Oliver explains.
In Helsinki, Option has faced an open atmosphere towards the development of innovative projects. This is what most attracts them to Helsinki.
– The attitude towards experiments with new and different solutions has taken us by surprise in Helsinki. Innovative technologies and experimental projects are received with an open mind. The culture of continuous reinvention is what makes a difference between a company and its competitors, and that’s very special in Helsinki. Personally, Helsinki is one of my favourite cities, with a good infrastructure and special kind of people, Oliver concludes.
