15 Why this megatrend? The megatrends of innovation is focusing more and more around startups The old world is about ideas, research and big companies creating the innovation (products and services from these). The old models is already working at it s best and is difficult to improve - as such, little growth can be achieved in that area The new world is about making the innovation happen via Startups, where innovation is also more openly and independently exposed to markets Startups are outsourced innovation for big companies and biggest group generating new jobs Startups are fast, flexible, highly motivated, cost effective and supported by private and public parties The big companies themselves are moving away from traditional innovation models towards more open innovation and working with and buying most promising startups after they have validated scalable innovation.
16 Difference between innovation & startup?
17 Innovation is about developing a new product, service or business model.
18 Startups do innovation and also develop a new growing company & business.
19 "What are the keys to get successful results?"
20 Focus To new growth ambition startup creation Pre-startup and early stage startup support services get more research, inventions, ideas and other IPR to be utilized by startups
21 Why Startups?
22 Recent study by Kauffman Foundation and the Institute for Competitiveness & Prosperity.
23 Over the last twenty five years, almost all of the private sector jobs have been created by businesses less than five years old.
24 Between 1988 and 2011, companies more than five years old destroyed more jobs than they created in all but eight of those years.
25 What is a Startup?
26 Startup A startup company or startup is a company or temporary organization designed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model
27 Startup The only essential thing is growth. Everything else we associate with startups follows from growth.
28 New Startup High Growth Ambition and very scalable business model "new startup" A Market validated business model B Unvalidated business model C D "a kiosk" Low Growth Ambition and/or Non Scalable business

34 Startup Ecosystem A startup ecosystem is formed by people, startups in their various stages and various types of organizations in a location (physical and/or virtual), interacting as an organic system to create new companies.

35 Startups & Ecosystems Startups develop in startup ecosystems through the development phases in constant interaction with various organizations, services & people. The more dynamic, transparent and balanced the ecosystem is the more successful startups ecosystem can create.
36 Case Helsinki
37 Challenge was Not enough (high) growth companies in Finland Growth services were a total mess Growth potential or stage was not systematically identified Angel investing was not systematically organized Poor investment readiness Ecosystem concept and understanding as a whole was missing ROI at single service and ecosystem level is unclear
38 Level 1: Identify problem Growth potential and development phases should be systematically identified Need more high growth companies to Helsinki Clear guidance to right growth paths Matching growth potential with most fitting services, people and accelerators should be systematically coordinated Improved investment readiness Ecosystem should be visualized to be understood
39 Level 2: Take action Make Startup development phases more broadly used as "canvas" for ecosystem service design Get common terminology more broadly to be used Identify service gaps and development new services to fix them Improve ecosystem level understanding and communications among the ecosystem parties Define handovers between services and iteratively improve Implement online ecosystem infrastructure to BETA use
40 Level 3: Finalize and start iterating Common metrics identified Ecosystem IT infrastructure in use Metrics implementation Metrics in use and shared with the ecosystem Iterative ecosystem development and validation by metrics
41 Midterm results Less unknown Silos are braking ROI becomes more measurable and understandable target Growing supply of investment ready startups more new companies creating jobs and attracting international investments into region
42 Three steps of ecosystem development 1. map out starting position 2. Identify and fix gaps and bottlenecks 3. implement measurements Iteratively improve; measure and learn
43 With help of key stages tool Map out ecosystem services Public & Private Describe ecosystem target Label items; startups, services, events, funding instruments, blog posts, tools, ideas, suggestions, etc.

60 Only the things that are understood can be developed
61 When more people and organizations are developing things together, there needs to be a common language and understanding about what is being developed.
62 Systematically implement this common language to your ecosystem and everything follows naturally.
63 Only things that can be measured, can be improved.
64 Missing knowledge you can buy.
65 Plenty of EU funding available.
