Dream Broker has donated €10 000 to The University of the Arts, Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy in recognition of the power of music as art and its positive therapeutical impact. It is the company’s privilege to help Sibelius Academy in its continued dedication to musical, artistic, as well as academic achievement. The donation comes as part of the company’s wider plan for community support first laid down in 2021.

An internationally recognised centre for developing the musical arts, the Sibelius Academy is the cornerstone of music culture in Finland due to its expertise in teaching, research, and artistic activities. The Sibelius Academy is one of the largest music academies in Europe, with the primary mission of renewing and fostering the music culture. The love of music and uncompromising passion for their work is the driving force behind this mission.

A creative community of approximately 1,500 students and 500 teachers, the Sibelius Academy attracts the best from across the continent to study, learn and teach. The international nature of the institution is reflected in their research, teachings, concerts, and other institutional activities.

The Academy has also been focusing on research and teaching the relationship between music and the mind. Mental health and wellbeing have been areas of focus during the past years as the Dean of Sibelius Academy, Emilie Gardberg, explained.

“We are coming out of a very difficult time. The pandemic has been very challenging and difficult, especially for young people. The power of music and its universal language is now more important than ever. Music offers a way of expressing emotions and it also has a therapeutic effect. When rebuilding our society, music and the arts have great importance.”
– Emilie Gardberg, Dean of Sibelius Academy

Dream Broker remains steadfast in supporting their customers, employees, and the community. The company believes in building a better future for our community by supporting valuable and meaningful causes. As the company continues to grow in stature, it hopes to help their community grow together by contributing to these causes as much as possible.

“This donation is a symbolic gesture that we hope will inspire other growing and successful businesses to give back to the arts, culture and community through philanthropy. Music as art can heal and comfort us – the timeless and eternal language of our souls.”
– Mika Ahokas, CEO, Dream Broker

Dream Broker, the Finnish-European online video software powerhouse is expanding into the United Kingdom with a subsidiary company in London. The London office will oversee operations in the UK and gain traction from London’s unique position as a true global capital. The office has begun its operations in January 2023.  

Mr. Rasmus Saarinen, Country Manager and Business Development Director, UK, leads the United Kingdom operations, reporting directly to Mika Ahokas, CEO of Dream Broker. 

The United Kingdom is a natural point of interest for operational expansion for any growth company due to its importance as an international trade hub and gateway to Commonwealth countries and the Anglosphere. The Commonwealth of Nations is home to over 2.5 billion people in 56 member countries. It plays an instrumental role in the promotion of trade, democracy and cultural exchange across the globe. In particular, London is a vital centre of trade and home to headquarters and subsidiaries of a vast number of multinational businesses and organisations.  

Entering the UK market has been in Dream Broker’s internationalisation strategy for years and is a significant milestone for the company. A presence in the United Kingdom is the latest step for the company to materialise its vision of revolutionising communication with easy-to-use, cyber secure video communication software.  

After being founded in 2007, Dream Broker has been one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, serving over 1100 loyal customers, in 8 countries, and offices in 10 cities. Today, the company is the market leader in the Nordics and one of the biggest players in Europe. As the company continues its expansion through Central and Western Europe, it offers a growing product family, of easy-to-use and cyber secure communication products: Dream Broker Studio, Dream Broker #One and Nian. 

As before, Dream Broker will trust the operational expansion and realisation of its vision and mission into the hands of locally sourced talent to ensure that their international clients are served by people who best understand their needs. With a diverse and locally minded team, the company and its London team will continue to drive the future of communication.
