Sievo, much like the participants of Hitchball 4000, started its world conquest from Helsinki, which still acts as a base for our global activities. Nowadays, we have grown into a truly international team that helps companies all over the world to get a grip of their procurement information, enabling them to make better decisions and create business value from procurement.

Sievo supports Hitchball 4000, because getting to know the world is a great experience, and Hitchball 4000 creates awareness for an alternative way to explore unknown places and to connect with new people. We also think that Hitchball 4000 gathers together people who are curious and not afraid to try out new stuff – just the kind of people we appreciate.

By the way, we ranked 7th in the Great Place to Work contest this year and we are recruiting – a lot! Check out open positions at !

Kyrö Tourism Board

The Kyrö Tourism Board  (Kyrönmaan Matkailun Edistämiskeskus) has been promoting tourism in the Kyrö area since 2015, but serves also as the visitor center for Kyrö Distilleryn Company. Just as with Hitchball 4000, creating experiences and bringing people together is at the core of everything we do. We offer distillery visits, local food dinners for groups and tasting sessions of Kyrö’s products – as well as good stories.

The Kyrö Tourism Board supports Hitchball 4000 in order to create with them something new and exciting. The race is all about open-minded attitudes and thirst for new experiences, which we want to emphasize as well here at Kyrö. The participants of Hitchball 4000 are warmly welcome to visit Isokyrö and discover the co-operative dairy facilities in which the Oltermanni cheese was once invented.


Do you think that doing together is the best way to reach the targets? And being curious is the best way to find the solutions that work in the future? We do. At Enoro, we work together with the forward-thinking energy companies. With them we create software solutions for the future. We cooperate with companies that go bravely into new areas – just like the participants of Hitchball 4000. We appreciate your great attitude of willing to try something new, and making a personal choice for an alternative, energy-conscious means of travelling. We are also constantly looking for courageous bright minds with the urge for self-development and the passion to learn. Maybe you will join us one day? Check out!
