The City of Helsinki offers services to entrepreneurs in all stages of business operations. NewCo Helsinki offers guidance to entrepreneurs launching a local business, as well as start-ups aiming for international growth.
Free-of-charge trainings, versatile events and networking meetings are available for supporting entrepreneurship, as well as an entrepreneurial space and special facilities for start-ups.
The advantages of business consulting services to a founder of a new company are significant. Of the companies founded by customers of NewCo Helsinki, 90% remain active two years after they were founded, and after five years, the figure is 80%. These are considerably higher figures than those for companies founded without using business consulting services.
Approximately 4,000 people aiming for entrepreneurship visit the NewCo Helsinki service point every year.
