Funding and services for projects in the developing countries -introduction for the Team Finland network


Organised on 18 October at 09:00–10:00 (Finnish time), this interactive session is tailored for the Team Finland network and other internationalisation advisors who work in or with developing countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, or in Europe.

We intend to give you an opportunity to

  • learn how Finnish companies and organisations can utilise Finnpartnership for their projects across the developing world
  • hear how companies in developing countries can use Finnpartnership’s Matchmaking service to find Finnish business partners
  • find out more about the types of investments made by Finnfund, and what types of projects it looks for   
  • be better placed to advise companies in your country, or looking to expand there, about the funding and other services that are available
  • pose your questions, feedback and collaboration ideas

Please register by 16 October here. Welcome!
