There are a lot of entrepreneurs in Finland who are originally from other countries. If you are one of them, we want to hear from you. What was it like setting up a company here? Do you know where you can get help, for example with hiring an employee or developing your business? Have you networked with other entrepreneurs?

We are launching a survey in the Helsinki region, Pirkanmaa and Southwest Finland to get information to develop better services for entrepreneurs in Finland. We would also like to hear your thoughts about your own business. In return, you will get information about the services that are already available in various areas.


The people listed at the bottom of this can answer any questions you may have.

Take part in the survey and you’ll be in with a chance to win one of three sets of cinema tickets. When the survey is over, we’ll hold a draw for a set of two tickets for each area: Helsinki region, Pirkanmaa, and Southwest Finland.

Personal information will only be used for purposes for which the survey respondent has given his or her consent. The information will be processed under the marketing register privacy policy of Suomen Yrittäjät:

The survey is open until 11 November 2018 via this link:
