Corporations looking for the best companies to invest in, have you thought of Helsinki?
Though the buzz around Finnish startup scene has been increasing exponentially for the past few years, large corporations have not yet fully woken up to see Finland as a potential source of their next big deal.
For several years Helsinki Business Hub has been providing international venture capital organizations access to deal flow with the help of International VC Zone network. Now the same services are available for corporate investors.
“Our aim is to raise corporate venture arms’ interest towards our high-potential companies and help corporations to tap into the best deal flow from Finland,” says Juho Pirinen, business advisor at Helsinki Business Hub.
“Basically we’re a one-stop-shop. We do matchfinding and introduce investors to growth companies relevant to their business. Many corporate investors are also interested in meeting local venture capital organization and learning more on the outstanding research and development opportunities in Finland. For any investor visiting Helsinki, we can tailor the kind of visit program that best matches their needs and interests,” Pirinen explains.
“Our services are free-of-charge, which hopefully makes it easier for corporate representatives to dial our number and find out whether there’s anything we can do to help,” Pirinen concludes.
