Enter Espoo is compiling services offered by our local ecosystem to Ukrainian businesses and entrepreneurs displaced by the war. You can also find resources on this page for Ukrainian citizens arriving in Finland. We actively monitor service and support opportunities and will update this page as we receive new information.
Please note also, that the Espoo ecosystem offers a variety of services to all businesses and entrepreneurs. Now, however, the most pressing concern is to help Ukrainians who may be in need of such services.
