Matching services

Targeted investor and matching events 

We organise internationalisation events and trips for growth companies in collaboration with various parties. These events are an opportunity to explore new markets and build contacts that may help with market access. On our internationalisation trips you get to meet local investors, representatives of major companies and other potential partners and take part in local growth company events.

Examples of the most important investor and matching events in Espoo’s innovation ecosystem:

Knights of Nordics

  • 32 internationella storföretag från Japan, Korea, Tyskland, USA och Sverige
  • 74 startup- och scaleupföretag från Finland, Norden och Tyskland

The aim of the Corporate-Startup Online Weeks event is to introduce start-ups and scale-ups from Espoo and elsewhere in Finland to international companies. The encounters occur through online meetings between pre-selected start-ups and large companies. Read more

Business Contact Database – support for finding foreign partners

Maintained by Enterprise Europe Network, the Business Contact Database allows you to find, for example, retailers, representatives, franchising partners, subcontractors, logistics partners and product development partners and explore opportunities for joint ventures and acquisitions. You can browse contact requests by profile type, profile country of origin, destination country or different search terms. By registering at the Business Contact Database, you can also create a search alert, which allows information about the profiles you are interested in to be automatically sent to your email. Please contact the experts if you would like to create your own contact request in the database.
