A new entrepreneur can apply for a start-up grant from the TE Office. This discretionary grant is intended for the entrepreneur for personal use and there are no restrictions on the form of enterprise or branch of industry. A start-up grant is given to a person who operates a full-time, continuous business enterprise that has been deemed profitable. Before you apply for the grant, book a meeting with our advisor, who will look through your business plan. You need to send a copy of the business plan with your start-up grant application.
The grant application must be submitted before the enterprise is established. The financing of the enterprise and a place of business must also be arranged before the grant application is submitted. The grant is for a period of 6 months and is awarded for one or two periods.
If you have questions concerning the conditions of awarding the grant, please contact the TE Office: starttiraha.uusimaa @ te-toimisto.fi
