Who Are Flowhaven? The Story Behind The Most Intuitive Brand Licensing Solution
In the world of brands, surviving without a compelling story isn’t just hard - it’s simply impossible. From our observation, this principle concerns pretty much every business that is engaged in the industry. Thus, a SaaS company that provides a brand licensing solution to its players shouldn’t be treated any differently. With this in mind, we’re shining a light on the story of Flowhaven by sharing thoughts of our CEO, Kalle Törmä, on the company and its foundation, the reality it lives today, and the plans that it has for the future.
Long before Flowhaven launched operations and engaged its early adopters, the company had embraced a solid vision. That vision encompassed a solution for the industry - one that would be technically strong to support the growth and scalability of licensing programs, yet flexible enough to meet specific, and sometimes narrow, needs of individual licensing businesses.
This, essentially, is how the concept of Flowhaven was born. Afterwards, there came a need to assemble a strong team with shared values and passion for innovation and licensing industry. Our founding team consists of people with experience in licensing operations, business, sales, and technology. Shortly after validating the market needs, the team has grown into its current size. At that point, Flowhaven welcomed competent techies as well as sales and marketing enthusiasts, ready to roll up their sleeves to build an intuitive and user-friendly brand licensing solution.
From the very early days of Flowhaven, it was clear that the team would need to cooperate closely and the work environment had to be inspirational. Today, we have achieved many milestones we’re so proud of, including becoming an official partner of Salesforce and releasing the first commercial version of our solution via AppExchange.
How We Work
From day one, we have embraced the best practices of both a startup and a growth-oriented business, positioning ourselves as a young but established company. While we sustain the learning curve of a startup, we understand that a company needs to exploit the key business practices to develop sustainably. By remaining proactive on both fronts, we have grown faster than we ever thought possible.
When it comes to the work we do, we like to keep our minds open and our operating methods flexible. Ever since the company’s establishment, our team’s learning curve has been steep and adventurous. However, all those efforts have always been essential for reaching the new heights.
Values We Stand For
From the technical perspective, high-quality and agile development is where we concentrate the core focus of our efforts. Thus, we strive for achieving comprehensive and pragmatic outcomes that meet the business requirements of our clients and enhance their licensing operations. On the whole, we have been lucky to work with partners and customers who provide us with their honest feedback.
We appreciate our team’s continuous efforts towards the success of each of our client. All of us consider this diligence to be our fundamental competitive advantage. To a great extent, the success of Flowhaven has been driven by our team and the special spirit that we maintain in our workplace. We keep the work atmosphere fresh and transparent, and we like to have fun while on duty. For instance, we enjoy
- Brainstorming new ideas and discussing project work plans together (especially on the dev side!)
- Sharing news, laughs, and stories (of both success and failure)
- Supporting each other on individual and joint projects
- Solving operational and technical puzzles together
- Sharing coffee breaks, going to lunches together, and playing Playstation
- Arranging quarterly get-togethers with a variety of activities from bowling to billiard and karaoke
We’ve built strong inner bonds with each other and our clients, whom we cooperate with daily. Supporting this philosophy brings us closer to our customer's team and enables us to be more adaptive and supportive when helping them.
What Are We After?
The key mission of our team is to continually integrate future technologies into our brand licensing solution and keep pace with the industry’s latest requirements. Next year we’re planning to experiment with AI. We’ll be enhancing the existing tools of our system and adopting new features for analytics and automation of licensing processes
Having just gotten started, our team is pursuing high ambitions. We strive for helping the brands and brand agencies to succeed with their licensing initiatives. As difficult as it sounds, we deeply believe that we’re on the right track. After all, it’s due to our genuine desire to help these companies that we stepped into this industry. This fondness fuels our motivation to further disrupt the brand licensing industry for the better.
