Finland — A Leading Startup Hub
Finland is a world-leading hub for tech-heads and investors. Our vibrant startup scene is growing
rapidly, and is attracting the most venture capital in all of Europe. Every day, innovations are brought to life and the aim is to go global from the start. And why not? Finland is always at the top of the list of the most competitive countries. Finnish startups are run by people who had the opportunity to learn and study in the best education system in the world. They are also extremely competitive, highly productive and used to working
in a multicultural, innovative business environment. It is all about teamwork.
Designed to function
What makes the Finnish startup scene, innovations and designs so exceptional? —Functionality. When you come from the
most functional country in the world, it is only natural for startups to find reliable, practical, sustainable solutions that meet ever-changing customer demands. As one of our successful startups put it, “Life is too short for lousy user experiences”.
We are the dream team
— together
The entrepreneurial business environment in the United States, which is characterized by disruption and diversity, creates an ideal base for Finnish startups. The U.S. affiliates benefit from groundbreaking Finnish ideas and innovations, and from our know-how and cutting-edge technology.
The value of cooperation is immeasurable. Hundreds of Finnish startups have already become established in the United States and the future continues
to look bright. Through collaboration we
can make a sustainable, important, and mutually beneficial impact.
Join us!
Finnish startups excel in ICT, cleantech, gaming and digital content, and health and wellbeing services; sectors that are very prominent in the U.S. market. This means endless business opportunities for both countries.
Finland has plenty of success stories to point to — such as the tech titans Nokia and Linux, and the gaming powerhouses Rovio (Angry Birds) and Supercell (Clash of Clans). And we know that even more success stories will follow. Let’s partner, learn, and do business together.
