African Strategic Ventures (ASV)

African Strategic-Ventures (ASV) is an investment advisory enterprise. We focus on providing unparalleled training, advice and support to Finnish Impact Investors and Policymakers to formulate conducive strategies and policies for succeeding in their internationalisation activities centred on penetrating Kenya's Business Markets. For Finnish Impact Investors, who comprise of equity investors and sustainably responsible companies: ASV provides them with a blueprint for how and in what optimal ways to successfully invest their varied equity portfolios and expertise within Kenya's Business Markets. For Finnish Policymakers: these key ASV services provide them with a blueprint for formulating timely policies for assisting Finnish impact equity investors and sustainably responsible companies to successfully invest their varied equity portfolios and expertise within Kenya's Business Markets. These internationalisation interventions are paramount, especially whilst considering the fact that Finland is in dire need to find new growth markets for its know-how. This acknowledgement is further enhanced owing to the fact that the Finnish Economy, and more broadly, the developed economies as a whole, are continuing to stagnate from the lack of growth opportunities. Hence, Kenya's Business Markets, in spite of their varied challenges, have continuously been touted as representing some of the most promising sustainable social and economic growth emerging markets of the future.

AUXKOR training

Kahden fysioterapeuttiopiskelijan yhdessä luoma luovempi treenikokonaisuus, jossa useista elementeistä rakentuu monipuolinen, innostava ja tehokas harjoitus, jossa treenaaminen on myös hauskaa. Treeniemme ”punainen lanka” on siinä, että treenaaja ei ennakkoon tiedä, mitä tunnilla tulee tapahtumaan ja ohjaajat järjestävätkin vaihtelevasti erilaisia ”yllätyksiä” ja antavat uusia ärsykkeitä pitkin tuntia. Takaamme kuitenkin joka kerta hikisen, innostavan ja kokonaisvaltaisen treenin.  Kannustamme ja motivoimme asiakasta tekemään parhaansa ja ylittämään itsensä ja sen myötä saamaan onnistumisen kokemuksia. Varioidut liikkeet mahdollistavat tehokkaan harjoittelun jokaisen kuntotason mukaisesti.
Kaksi asialle omistautunutta ohjaajaa takaavat tehokkaan ja oikeaoppisen harjoittelun, jossa myös yksilö huomioidaan.  Alkuvaiheessa tuntikokonaisuudet rakentuvat pääasiassa toiminnallisesta- ja kehonpainoharjoittelusta.
