Grow with Business Finland

Business Finland is supporting companies to go global, funding innovations and identifying business opportunities and helping to transform them into global success stories.  Business Finland is also speeding up creation and development of ecosystems, and orchestrating theme specific programs to build networks which enable the participants to resolve common challenges and learn from their peers. Business Finland is a partner for Finnish SMEs who are aiming to international growth, and can support companies during the different stages of internationalization.

Because of several requests from Health Tuesday audience, we have decided to focus our seminar in April to introduce Business Finland more in detail. How to become a customer, what you should know about Busiess Finland services and processes, and how Business Finland can boost your international growth.

After the seminar, there will be a short networking session followed by Japan market opportunity related roundtable. 

Please do note that the virtual Teams event will be recorded for viewing after the event.
