When we kicked off Enfuce back in June of 2016 the driving force was to make something awesome, a company that delivers services better, faster and cheaper than the incumbent players. We truly set aim to enable positive change within the payment industry. Fast forwarding a couple of years; we have a great track record with projects both challenging and big for our customers, and we have the aim set for a global journey!
The possibility to participate in the Lighthouse development program was a great strategic step for us. Organized in collaboration by NFT Ventures and Mastercard, it helped us to crystalize our next steps in our growth journey. We met with advisors to discuss about funding, corporate governance, marketing, pretty much anything that was on the agenda for taking the company to the next level!
Participating in the Lighthouse program is a short-term effort with long-term benefits! The opportunity to meet with advisors, start-up’s, prospect customers and a handful of global connections in a one on one environment makes the success and long-term benefits of the program a real possibility- that in the end is up to you to grab a hold of.
The program pushed us to innovate our service offering and through instant feedback from all the participants we were able to produce a game changing service which we are launching in 2019. For a sneak-peak of the service, I can tell you that it has to do with sustainability, which is one of our core values at Enfuce.
The program is a journey and the learnings and connections are valuable on a big scale, and as a Finnish tech company being able to take home first place in our home city of Helsinki during Slush, was in our mind EPIC in every way possible!
Now we are looking for the next step on our Lighthouse Journey as we are off to New York City and the Mastercard Start Path meetup!
Collaboration is Key for success and the Lighthouse program is a great way to expand your mind-set, grow in knowledge and take the next step in reaching your full potential!
