Join us in developing digital commercial solutions for the sustainable development goals!

Please note that the SDG Booster is a two-workshop event, and participation in the first workshop is compulsory in order to access the second workshop.

Starting in early 2020, the brand-new SDG Boosters will bring together companies, NGOs, financial instruments and thematic experts to develop solutions and projects to address concrete needs identified from developing countries.

The second of the new SDG Boosters by Finnpartnership, UNTIL, Fingo and Business Finland is about Circular Economy, specifically focusing on waste-to-energy, including plastic waste. With the help of our local networks, we have identified the main challenges and needs related to waste-to-energy and plastic waste in Vietnam and Thailand. The companies and organizations attending the Circular Economy SDG Boosters are expected to come together and create solutions and consortia in order to respond to the identified challenges. Only Finnish companies or organizations are eligible participants for the workshops.

The first workshop will be held on March 27th, 2020 and the second on April 8th, 2020. The venue of the first Booster will be announced closer to the event. The second Booster will be held at the Team Finland House, Porkkalankatu 1, 00180 Helsinki. At the first workshop, we come together to assess the needs and the suitability of our solutions. We begin the process of co-creating and developing our projects and consortia. At the second workshop, we continue to shape our products and projects and identify their development impacts and unique value propositions. We also learn to utilize public funding such as Finnpartnership and Business Finland.

The Booster workshops start at 8.30 with registration and morning coffee , there is lunch break at 11.20 – 12.30 and the wrap-up of the day will take place at 12.30 – 13.30. After the official part of the workshop, there is possibility to stay and continue discussions with the organizers and experts till 15.00. More specific agenda will be published prior to the event.

After the workshops, Finnpartnership will arrange a “Doing Business with Finland” seminars in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, later in 2020 where the results and solutions will be presented to business and government leaders of these countries.
