We provide funding, networking and advicing to renew your international business operations, leadership and management.

About program

Is your company aiming for international markets and rapid business growth? Are you thinking about organisational renewal, better leadership and new ways of working?

If your answer is an enthusiastic Yes, then the Liideri – Business, Productivity and Joy at Work Programme (2012–2018) is the right partner for you.

We have three themes to help rethink and develop your international business operations:

  1. Participation in the development of business models, products and services How effectively does your company utilise and develop the ideas, expertise and innovation potential of your personnel and customers?
  2. New ways of working How do you share responsibility and leadership? Fully benefit from your networks? Use digital tools to change the way your company works?
  3. Managing international growth Are you exploiting everyone’s initiative and skills to generate added value for your customers? Grasping change as an opportunity for growth?

Team Finland’s objective is to double the volume of Finnish SMEs’ exports by 2020. Our vision is that in 2020 Finland will have Europe’s most competitive companies –embracing participatory leadership and workplace renewal, seizing the opportunities offered by digitalization and creating more international growth with motivated people.

Where does your company want to be in five years? What are your ideas for achieving success and what steps are you prepared to take? What kind of personnel and skills do you need to support the realisation of your vision? We are ready to work with you.
