If you are interested in entrepreneurship in Finland, you only need one place for business advice. EnterpriseEspoo is an enterprise agency that provides free business coaching both for those planning to start a company and for existing companies. We also organise various events and Business Clinics for entrepreneurs.
An enterprise agency at your service
Our professional and experienced business advisors have almost 2 000 client meetings annually, resulting in about 500 new businesses in the Espoo region. We want support new businesses and coach entrepreneurs to success.
We also provide professional business advice to immigrants in several different languages. In 2016, about 28% of our clients were immigrants.
You can book a meeting for our business advisory services flexibly at the Innopoli office in Otaniemi, the centre of the strongest concentration of Finnish industry, technology and research. Our enterprise agency also has appointments at the Kirkkonummi municipal building (read more). Our advisors also meet with clients at their business premises if necessary.
Wide network of experts
If you need help with drafting a contract or designing a website, for instance, you will be referred to our network of experts.
In addition to the experts, EnterpriseEspoo has other members, such as educational establishments and other organisations that support entrepreneurship. You will find a list of our members at the bottom of the Network of Experts page. We also co-operate with Finnvera, Team Finland, the ELY Centre and Tekes.
EnterpriseEspoo has supported businesses in the region since 1993. We are funded mainly by the municipalities of Espoo, Kauniainen and Kirkkonummi. We are part of the nationwide network of Enterprise Agencies.
Business advisory services are important: after five years of operations, more than 80 per cent of businesses established through advisory services are still operating, whereas fewer than half of those established without advice are in business. Our services have been certified by Inspecta.
