Aiming at business activities amounting to billions of euros
Welcome to join us in building new billion-euro export businesses in Finland!
Business Finland uses the name Growth Engine to describe cooperation networks − ecosystems − aimed at new business activities amounting to more than one billion euros. Growth Engines are implemented through an enterprise-driven partnership model between companies, research organizations and public actors, which strives to find solutions to global market disruption and create new growth sectors in Finland.
Growing Engine funding enables:
- Collaboration between companies of different sizes, research organizations and public actors to achieve a common concrete business goal.
- Launching a new operator, a platform company to achieve a business goal
- The construction of the platform company's business and through it generating extensive networking effects
The Government has directed EUR 60 million of capital funding for Growth Engines in 2018 (30 M€) and 2019 (30 M€). In addition, Business Finland directs its normal funding (about 200 M€ 2018-19) and services to projects that meet the ambitious and funding criteria of companies, research organizations and communities operating in Growth Engines, aiming at achieving a Growth Engine's business objective.
