Describe the company – the elevator pitch for Global Spy?
Would you have ever wanted to invest in a domestic or foreign company or wanted to order interesting online products but the supplier did not have the confidence to do it enough and therefore not investing or buying the product? Or have you bought a business background survey and you’ve been thinking that your research might also be of interest to other interested buyers.
We have been doing small and large surveys for our customers for over six years. Our customers are small and large companies and individuals who have noticed that background research is important and surprisingly inexpensive to produce a competent company. As investing has become more internationalized, the acquisition of background research has exploded, which has also been reflected in our turnover by 25% per annum, up to about almost EUR 2 million euros.
We are now in Global Spy to create a unique platform where you can easily purchase a new or a previously made research quickly and cheaply and resell your purchased research as many times as you like. The platform also serves as a quick source of information for banks, stock exchanges, and other companies that are required to acquire surveys of their customers’ political connections and the origin of funds by law (of course, this information can not be sold again to another clients).
With the new platform and the ICO, our aim is to jump directly into the biggest influences of the research industry and to act as an innovative and emerging company in the coming years.

How are you different?
Our platform is something that the market does not yet have. So far, none of the service providers are offering their customers the opportunity to sell their purchases to easily found customers, nor the ability to quickly and affordably buy finished research from other customers.
Why will you do well?
We are a passionate and innovative company and we want to continue to develop our business and are prepared to do things differently than they are used to do.
Our brilliant international team works in day-to-day cooperation so that the strengths of every employee are utilized in the best possible way.
Where are you based?
We have offices in Paimio – Finland and Tallinn – Estonia, also our team members in China, Philippines and US have their home offices.
We had to move our business to Estonia because the legislation and taxation regarding ICOs in Finland is unfinished, while in Estonia they are much clearer. We made a move to protect both investors investing in ICO and our business.
When was the company launched?
J2P2-Invest Oy in Finland was launched in 2012 and we have transferred whole business to GlobalSpy OU in Estonia at the middle of 2017.
What have been your biggest wins to date?
Getting our customers trust is by far our greatest achievement. Our current customers have stayed with us and are constantly conducting customer satisfaction surveys.
Who are you trying to attract to your product?
Anyone who invests abroad or orders products from abroad. Also companies that, due to legislation, have to obtain the necessary information about their customers, (this is the fastest growing part of our business)
What tips would you give to others looking to build their business?
I think the key thing is your passion to your work whatever it is. Set yourself the goal you want your business to be from one year to three years. Make yourself a careful plan to implement it and keep track of the path you have done.In every business becomes own challenges but just go over these and follow your yearly plan.
Tell us about your team?
Our Team is currently seven members from four different countries. Our team consists of a former police officer, people with nearly 20 years experience of research industry and IT expertise. Immediately after the end of ICO, we will train and recruit more researchers to countries where studies are conducted. We also recruit programmers to produce and develop our platform. Our team will therefore grow considerably
What are your plans for the future?
We want to continually expand both our services offering and the areas where we operate. Naturally, my goal is that our company will be the largest in our industry.
The Global Spy team is proud to announce that it has brought on board several advisors that will help propel the ICO and project to new heights. We will be introducing them one at a time. Each of the advisors brings valuable experience, knowledge and expertise to the project.

What are your favourite tech gadgets?
I do not fully understand the question but I have always been particularly interested in robotics and before my entrepreneurship I have been worked programmer and trainer around the world in robotics and CNC machine industry. I have installed and led installations to a large robot and CNC-machine installations around the world.
