Inventing new business ideas is fun, and setting up and starting a company is relatively easy up to a certain point. Succeeding at finding sufficient funding and getting a product to the market is a little bit more difficult, but there are well-established ways, channels and service providers to help with the process.

Next we hopefully realize that the proof-of-concept is accomplished and the demand is proven, and calculations show tremendous potential. Excellent! However, how does this potential turn into genuine growth; real product sales, projects, contracts, and successful implementation? This can be tricky, especially if the demand and potential is geographically far beyond one’s own backyard and network.

To make the ideas turn into something tangible, from potential to revenue, the implementation of results requires significant trust between different parties.

Trust is at the core of everything. To make the ideas turn into something tangible, from potential to revenue, the implementation of results requires significant trust between different parties. Without trust, there are no agreements and the challenges arising during projects, and let’s face it – challenges always occur, easily escalate into disputes, unnecessary costs and time delays. Without trust the potential right before your eyes can end up being be far out of reach.

At Korkia we have been working hard and with determination for several years to create strong, trusting relationships with our major partners around the world. We have invested a lot of hours, thousands and thousands of miles, personal sacrifices and, of course, capital. We have jointly created economic activities, we’ve been successful, solved challenges, created the future, and met people. Trust is the engine of all growth, and we make it happen every day.

In addition to providing financing, Korkia connects companies seeking growth trust capital with verified, strong, and competent partners. I see this as one of our key strengths, one that I am extremely proud of. There are no shortcuts when building trust, but one who has already earned confidence can help others by acting as a matchmaker where trust does not yet exist.
