Finnpartnership: Application workshop, August 17, 2023 (Register by August 10), Microsoft Teams
The workshop will allow you to assess project eligibility for Finnpartnership funding (Business Partnership Support) and provides hands-on instructions for drafting an application. Moreover, the workshop includes information on Business Finland funding opportunities for developing markets as well as collaboration possibilities with NGOs (presentation by Fingo). Development impacts and UN Sustainable Development Goals are also on the agenda.
Identifying how your company contributes to sustainable development and holding the capability to clearly communicate these development impacts are key for expanding the range of potential partnerships and funding opportunities. The application workshop is also an introduction to collaboration with international organisations (e.g. UN and EU) and impact investors.
The workshop is organized monthly (bi-monthly in English) in collaboration with Business Finland and Fingo.
In addition to Business Partnership Support, the workshop introduces companies from developing countries that are currently seeking business partners in Finland. These companies have been subject to Finnpartnership’s preliminary screening and are listed in the public Matchmaking database.
Application workshops are intended for companies/organisations eligible for Business Partnership Support, i.e. organizations registered in Finland or with Finnish ownership.
The workshop is held online via Microsoft Teams. The final programme is distributed to registered participants before the workshop.
Upon registration, participants are requested to provide a short description of their current business activities/industry and the type of business partners that are of interest.
