Business Finland

We create the basis for new growth by helping businesses to grow and internationalize, and by funding research and innovation. In Finland, we are developing the world's most attractive and competitive innovation environment, where businesses find it easy to grow, regenerate and succeed.

At the beginning of January 2018, the innovation funding providers Tekes and Finpro – which offered internationalization, investment and tourism promotion services – merged to form Business Finland. In structural terms, Business Finland split into an agency (the innovation funding center, Business Finland) and a company (Business Finland Oy). In our practical work, we act across organizational boundaries as a single Business Finland.

Business Finland employs around 600 specialists in 40 overseas locations and 18 locations in Finland. Our working community has representatives of over 30 nationalities. Business Finland is part of the Team Finland network.

Our strategy is twofold: enabling international growth for businesses, and creating world-class business ecosystems and a competitive business environment for Finland.

Our values as the cornerstones of our goal-based culture 

Our values exist to guide us in how we work. The Business Finland strategy and targets guide is in what we work for.

Our values will be visible to our partners and customers and felt by them when they meet us. They create the feeling people get for the kind of organization Business Finland is and what our customers' experience of us is.

Our values set the corner stones of our target culture. We all play a role in our values coming to life! 

  • With passion
  • Think big
  • All together
  • With sisu.
