Growth from developing markets - Application workshops 2017

Enter the developing markets using Finnpartnership support funds and business network. Finnpartnership is offering 10 workshops for Finnish companies in 2017. The workshops discuss the Finnpartnership support fund application process and introduce African, Asian, and Latin American companies that are currently seeking business partners in Finland.

Workshops also discuss the Team Finland services that are relevant to the participants for both Finland and the target countries and introduce a theme that is important for the topic. In 2017, workshops will be organised in Helsinki, Vantaa, Tampere, Jyväskylä, and Oulu. Regional workshops will be implemented in cooperation with Finnish Enterprise Agencies.

Upon registration, participants are asked to provide a description of their current business activities/industry and what types of business partners they are seeking in the developing markets. The wishes of participants are included in the workshop programme. The participants briefly introduce their companies and/or current projects, which allows for cooperation opportunities within each group. Workshops are also open to non-governmental organisations (NGO) in the developing countries. NGOs have been able to engage in projects that support business together with companies since 2016.

The workshops in Helsinki are primarily held at Finnfund premises at Uudenmaankatu 16 B during 9 am - 1 pm. All workshops are already open to registration. Information on the possibility for remote participation in Helsinki workshops is also available. Information on the potential future special themes is available in our newsletter. The programme of the workshop is sent to registered attendees a few days before the event. Registration to the events is available using the below links. Welcome!
