Gofore was founded in 2001, quickly pivoting from e-payments to business consultancy, and now aims to use its expert workforce to help transform companies and organizations into their best versions. Over the last two decades Gofore has gone from struggling to success, forecasting continued growth by at least 15% over the next few years.
As an all-in-one business consultancy firm, Gofore provides custom solutions ranging from bespoke software and experience design to cybersecurity and systems development and integration. From top to bottom, the firm provides insights as well as applications for business development while helping its clients make the leap of digital transformation.
Gofore was founded by Timur Kärki and three partners, growing from a small, struggling family business to a publicly listed company with a workforce of over 600 employees and a market cap of over $320 million in USD. After building the company from the ground up as CEO, in 2019 Kärki stepped aside as an executive to take on the role of Chairman of the Board, leaving homegrown executive Mikael Nylund at the helm. The company has been recognized as one of the best places to work in Finland and in Europe at large.
