There is a limited amount of jobs in Finland at the moment. We support the business ideas of newcomers, and eventually create more jobs for everyone. We believe that working and using one’s talent is the most efficient way to integrate into a new society.

Are you interested in starting a company in Finland? Do you have a business idea? Do you need support with how it’s done in Finland? Startup Refugees Business Program is here for you!

Startup Refugees Business Program offers support for newcomers interested in starting companies in Finland. Starting a business is hard work, and the program is only open to those who are committed to turning their business idea into reality.
