Networks for growth and internationalization
The Business Finland programs strengthen the international know-how of the whole of Finland: we improve the possibilities businesses have to become part of international networks and business ecosystems, as well as help Finnish companies create completely new growth opportunities for the future.
Through Business Finland programs, domestic and international research organizations, companies, and other interest groups combine their efforts to increase international business, to enhance competitiveness and to renew Finnish society.
We offer funding for research, development, and piloting of products and services aimed at global markets, and also provide internationalisation services for marketing and for selling products and services to clients worldwide.
In order to gain funding for potential companies, we also connect international investors and businesses with each other.
