Serviceform is ready to expand into new markets and its clients’ expectations with the help of 2M€ support from the investors.

Sri Lankan CEO Iranthi Gomes and Finnish CTO Jarkko Oksanen run their company to help business owners like a tale fairy, not with a magic band but simplified business software.
“Gorilla Capital has been a Serviceform investor since 2018, so we’ve had a 1st-row seat to monitor their progress. They have been one of the steadiest growth stories in our portfolio, and now they are ready to move to the next level. We are very excited to see them start the next chapter on their journey.” commented Risto Rautakorpi, Managing Partner at Gorilla Capital.
New Chapter for Serviceform
The company’s aim is to provide guidance to the business owners with the best possible management tips to grow healthier in their business. Now they are backed by the investors to unleash their potential. The contribution will enable Serviceform provide their services in Sweden and the central Europe soon. That means they need to expand their team to fulfil the expectations of their current and new clients. Serviceform’s software can be preferred to use simplified versions of the parts designed by the top companies around the world. Since it is hard to find a way into the digital zone without worrying. The platform requires minimal effort as possible.
Iranthi Gomes, the CEO of Serviceform, says “very thrilled to partner with BackingMinds to take Serviceform to the next level. We started Serviceform because we saw the lack of simple business software targeted for businesses outside the tech community when we were running a coffee catering business in Australia. All SaaS products require you to have a certain amount of experience in finding the right solution and setting it up. It can be quite frustrating and time-consuming. Managing a business is hard enough without having to spend time learning new complex tools.”

“What we find very interesting with Serviceform is that they have found a niche, traditional companies that are still underserved digitally. These companies struggle to find simple digital tools to grow their businesses. With Serviceform, they can triple the number of leads very shortly. Serviceform has a super sticky product with fantastic customer satisfaction.” Sara Resvik, CEO & Partner of BackingMinds VC, said.
