Start-ups are strategically important engines for technology, business and society development. Curiosity, agility, flexibility and innovation are the superpowers of start-up companies. From the perspective of international competition, our biggest challenge seems to be the lack of imagination – also in start-up companies, says Ideascouts' CEO Pekka Ketola.
