Join our event to explore collaboration opportunities with Finland, a country that is looking to foster talent and entrepreneur.

Finland is a stable, safe, and progressive country with strong social welfare programs. Here, we emphasize work-life balance, providing an employee-friendly workday, and holding employers to high standards.


But that's not all. Finland also has a vibrant start-up scene and rapidly growing tech sector, offering exciting opportunities for English-speaking professionals from around the world. Flat hierarchies and a national appetite for innovation encourage employees of all levels to weigh in on things like workplace culture, policies, and processes, and regular work hours enable everyone to enjoy plenty of time with family and friends. Finally, Finnish companies view workplace culture as a key competitive differentiator and strive to create a positive, inclusive work environment for all.
