Software company Leanware Oy, which specializes in software systems for commerce, manufacturing and logistics, is seeking to rapidly accelerate growth. Korona Invest, which specializes in investing in growth companies, joined the effort as the majority shareholder and as a partner for other shareholders to implement the growth plan. All the current owners will continue as shareholders and continue as Leanware employees.

“Our vision is to make Finnish companies among the most competitive in the world. In order to accelerate the implementation of our vision, we want to strengthen our position in the development of Finnish digitization where our goal is to always offer solutions based on actual needs and offer first-class service to our current and future customers. Maintaining and developing the high quality of our services requires us to listen carefully to our customers and offer our personnel meaningful work and a pleasant work environment. When selecting a growth partner, we decided on Korona Invest, because we saw that their values best matched our culture and goals. Working with Korona provides us with a lot of new expertise for developing our current services and proven experience in expanding our service offering through acquisitions, for example”, explains CEO Ville Keskinen.

“Leanware’s operative growth, customer-centric and continuously developed software products and well-known customer references demonstrate the company’s ability to reliably serve its customers based on the actual needs of the customers in several different industries. I believe that we will be able to help Leanware implement its growth strategy by drawing from the experiences we have gained through our many successful growth companies”, says Pasi Lehtinen from Korona Invest.

Leanware’s goal is to increase its current sales revenue several fold over the next five years.
