Growth Services

We match your startup or scaleup with international corporations and investors and help you enter international markets.

Enter the ecosystem of Finnish unicorns 

From Espoo come the finest Finnish startup success stories. Supercell and Slush were born here. So are about a hundred startups, every year. No wonder international companies come here to find out what’s next in innovation. We know this because we help them to do so. 

We work continuously with international corporations and investors and match them with the right startups, scaleups, and technologies in Espoo’s innovation ecosystem. We also help your startup to enter international markets by working together with our Finnish and international partners.

How do we help you with Growth Services?

  1. First, we talk to the investors and corporations to know what they are looking for.
  2. Then, we find suitable startups and scaleups using our strong local knowledge, a vast network of partners, and digital tools like the Dealroom ecosystem platform.
  3. Finally, we make the correct matches in events such as our annual Knights of Nordics investor event or digital activities like our Corporate-Startup Online Weeks. Sometimes we even bring the investor/ corporation right to your doorstep.

Internationalisation opportunities

How can your startup join our market entry events and activities?

  1. We work with local and Finnish partners like Aalto University, VTT, Helsinki Partners, and Business Finland. We also work with international partners like Entrepreneurship Roundtable Accelerator from New York.
  2. We co-organise events like Corporate-Startup Online Weeks to match international corporations and investors with startups/ scaleups. 
  3. Sometimes, we invite a group of companies to join a delegation to a foreign market to make a bigger splash together.

Senior Business Advisor
Social and easy-going, Ossi performs best in complex projects under tight schedules. When a situation looks hopeless, Ossi starts to warm up. As a traditional Finn, business comes before pleasure to him. However, outside the office, you might find Ossi at Nuuksio's remote areas or Espoo's local breweries. And if you're lucky enough to catch him, you're sure to get the friendliest of welcomes — whoever you are.
