FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Venture Capital Company Nordic Option Oy Invests in Haltian

Haltian finalizes an investment round on 21st of December 2017.  Nordic Option Oy – a finnish venture capital company invests in Haltian Oy together with earlier investors, such as Scripo Oy Vencubator. Haltian will use the funds to accelerate its IoT devices platform business called Thingsee.  

Haltian was founded in 2012 by former Nokia team and has established it´s business as a boutique product development services company – collaborating with large companies and ambitious startups around the World. In addition to developing products and solutions to others, Haltian has invested in their IoT offering under the brand Thingsee.  In November 2017 Haltian launched a new Thingsee IoT Devices platform. In pre-sales the platform has been able to gain interest from potential customers around the World. More than 70 enterprise customers are under negotiations, more than 25 pilots have been started and the first commercial devices are now in mass manufacturing.

Haltian CEO and Co-Founder Pasi Leipälä is very satisfied to have Nordic Option as an investor.“Nordic Option is a VC from northern Finland, which was one of the key factors in choosing the right partner. Nordic Option has shown a lot of proof on how to support similar stage companies with international growth. I trust we are able to gain a lot of good momentum in the IoT market working together.”

Nordic Option CEO Jaakko Lampela is extremely happy to invest in Haltian. “Haltian expertise and team is top notch. It is great that we can work together on building the next big commercial tech success story in Finland. Haltian has built leading expertise in the Internet of Things, both launching a number of devices globally under their Thingsee brand and for their design services customers. For example, their customers just launched two prime results on their collaboration with Haltian; The Oura Smart Ring and Specim Mobile Hyperpectral Camera are both innovative examples of top of class design and engineering.

In my opinion Haltian´s Thingsee platform is one of the most advanced out there and we are expecting both exciting new references and fast growth for Haltian´s business in the years ahead.”
