The Finnish Startup Permit makes it possible for international growth entrepreneurs to build a startup company in Finland and to become part of Finland’s vibrant startup ecosystem. The permit is meant for innovative startup founders coming from countries outside the European Union.
Helsinki offers a huge pool of technical and creative talent. And as an employer, the timing is perfect. Growth companies like Wolt, Smartly, and Supercell have trained Helsinki’s tech workers what real growth looks like, and they’re hungry for new opportunities.
What sets Helsinki apart is great access to services for young and established companies alike. It comes in many flavors, like fast 4G across the whole country, innovative testbeds for sectors like self-driving, proactive city and government organizations, and much more.
