To reinvent the health and well-being sector

From the start, our aim has been to challenge and change current operating models in order to produce new and better services for patients, clients and health care professionals.

Our approach is to take companies under our wings and look after them. We provide our companies with the freedom and resources to improve. We encourage and help to innovate. We do not grow companies to sell them but to build sustainable business.

On the back of these principles, we have become a corporate family worth approximately EUR 200 million, and our growth continues.

Our story

Cor Group’s story began in 1988 when four young medical students from Oulu decided to start publishing different kinds of guides to facilitate the work of doctors. Soon, they were selling advertising space in their popular guides to finance their studies.

The guides proved invaluable to doctors, and their popularity kept growing. The operations quickly expanded to other areas of business.

Right from the beginning, Cor Group companies have dared to challenge the established operating models and come up with ideas on how to do things better and smarter. This has proved to be an excellent model, which has often provided a clear competitive edge.

A similar critical mindset and open-mindedness have also encouraged the company’s owners to grow their business where others have hesitated. They have dared to take risks and tried to learn from their mistakes and enjoy their successes.
