About program

Business Finland´s goal is to make Finland a pioneer in the personalized healthcare field, creating a new type of healthcare platform, leveraging Finnish data warehouses and promoting business growth.

One of the megatrends of health care is that the treatment is transformed from mass-oriented care towards individual care. Identifying individual effects through, for example, genetic research enables the move from "one disease – one drug" -thinking in the development of medicines into identifying the individual effects of treatment. Personalized medicine gives you the opportunity to anticipate and prevent diseases as well as find the right care at the right time to the right people.

The Personalized Health Program supported Finnish innovation and top-level research and created new business around personalized healthcare area, promoted growth and renewed and created new business life. The program also helped growth companies raise venture capital and R&D funding, grew new know-how and attracted international venture capital, R&D and business units to Finland.
