Business Finland Programs

About Programs

Business Finland is launching programs in areas with significant new market potential for Finnish companies. 

The purpose of Business Finland's program activities is to prompt businesses to benefit from market transitions and to increase understanding of themes affecting the future of business. This enables us to increase international business operations and to renew Finnish society.

Business Finland's programs enable the participants to resolve common challenges and learn from their peers. The programs provide a unique way for bringing together various different operators: companies of different size seeking growth, renewal and internationalization as well as research and other organizations working in cooperation with the companies.

We operate persistently: the typical duration of the programs is 4–6 years.

Customized service entities

In the programs, we offer the internationalization and innovation-funding services of Business Finland as entities which have been customized in accordance with the goals and target groups of each program.

We provide the companies with advice on entering the markets and networking with suitable partners. We assist them in finding new, growing markets and customers as well as in enhancing international networking and using innovations for renewal. We also connect international investors and companies with each other in order to receive capitalization.

In cooperation with other Team Finland operators, we offer international networks and possibilities to influence which allow us to generate new growth for Finnish companies together.

In principle, there is no membership fee for participating in the programs. Some of the services related to the development of the company's own business operations (such as participation in trade fairs, delegation trips and meetings with buyers) come with a fee.
