A sound business idea, business skills and careful planning are useful in the starting and running of a company.  They also help in the arranging of financing.

You can seek financing from Finnvera for purchases, investments and working capital during the early stages of your business.

The website and telephone service of Enterprise Finland provide advice on setting up a company and starting business operations.

When setting up a business, you should also consult a business advisor in the nearest start-up centre or regional business service. The business advisor helps you to finalise your business idea and assists in the preparation of the business plan and the necessary calculations.
