Kristoffer Lawson and Holvi
Couple of days ago (on Monday, 3rd of February to be exact) Lutes had a great chance to meet Kristoffer Lawson, the co-founder of Holvi. Kristoffer Lawson was a special guest for our Entrepreneurship Evening, where we had an opportunity to know more about the reasons behind Holvi’s success and familiarize ourselves with the product.
Holvi has been raising attention on the entrepreneurship scene in Finland for a while now. The revolutionary service with simpler and smarter banking in its core is what Holvi is. Traditional way of banking is quite tedious, whereas Holvi incorporates features such as built-in invoicing, VAT calculation for all the payments, built-in online store, account sharing feature and many other to name. The friendliness of user interface is what can be noticed first. Kristoffer has also outlined during his speech that design matters a lot. Even if the product is great, the way it looks like matters a lot too. According to Kristoffer the great team is one of the key success factors behind any startup activities. He has mentioned that looking for the best and perfect team match should be set as original target.
In November 2013 Wired magazine selected Holvi as no. 1 Finnish startup.
