Technopolis Arranged Video Seminar for Private Investors
On Thursday, November 8, Technopolis arranged a video seminar for private investors. Over 70 people took part in 10 locations. Local associations of the Finnish Private Investors Association from across Finland were Technopolis’s partner for the event.
”Usually this kind of event is aimed at institutional investors. This is a good example of how a company can use modern tools to improve the equality of shareholders and flow of information,” says Antti Jylhä, chair of the local shareholders’ association in the Oulu region, who was actively involved in arranging the event.
Due to the high interest, videoconferencing facilities were also used in Rovaniemi and Kuusamo. Technopolis has more than 5,500 private shareholders, whose combined shareholding amounts to approximately 16% of all outstanding shares. They are the third-largest group of investors after Finnish pension insurance companies and foreign investors.
”This is this year’s sixth event for private investors in which Technopolis is taking part. At five events, the partners have been the Finnish Private Investors Association or its local associations,” says Keith Silverang, CEO of Technopolis.
Technopolis collects feedback from the event participants for further development of the event. The aim is to make the event an annual one.
