About this book

This book is about promising collaborative avenues for connecting Finland and India with value propositions for enterprises, consumers and investors worldwide. The book covers institutional and cultural differences and explains the logic of business systems, entry modes, and managerial styles in both countries.  It draws on experience of successes and also failures to know what should be done differently. It would also interest policymakers that India’s challenges of planting economic orchards in patches of social desert and Finland’s struggle to preserve a social paradise against pulls and pressures of economic graveyards in Europe are both solvable with attention to complementarities and synergies.

“From his long and rich experience of working with Finnish and Indian companies and passionate research at IIM Ahmedabad in India, and Aalto University and University of Tampere in Finland,  Professor Mathur has a very deep knowledge of how to do business in both countries. Every company leader who considers starting Finnish-Indian business should read this new book.  This valuable book will help companies entering new markets to flourish by building robust sustainable business relations.”

About the authors

Dr. Ajeet N. Mathur is a professor of Strategy and International Business, Business Policy and Economics Areas at the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad. He is also the chairperson of the Centre for Gender Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity (GEDI). His interests are at the crossroads of economics, human behaviour in groups, law, strategic management of organisational knowledge and international business. These are reflected in his multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary work with corporations and as an expert in change management, institutional design and missing markets with the ILO, WHO, ADB and the European Commission. His research particularly focuses on pervasive uncertainty and systemic risks; how motives and powerbases combine in group relations and the unconscious dynamics of large groups; bridging strategy with organization development; the dynamic co-evolution of capabilities; politics of disharmony in the management of gender differences; why missing markets remain; market barriers; and the management of institutional diversity in cross-border value chains.

Before joining IIM Ahmedabad, he served as a founding professor of International Business, University of Tampere, Finland, EU-TEMPUS Professor of European Integration and Internationalization, and as IFCI Chair Professor, Indian Council of Research on International Economic Relations.
