Funding has always been a very important topic for startups, but what is more interesting is the opportunity for startups to attract not just local but also foreign investors who can help them scale and enter new markets.

In this Month's fireside chat, we will be hosting Miska Hakala. He is currently the CEO, Helsinki Business Hub Oy the international trade and investment promotion agency for the capital of Finland. One of the services of Helsinki Business Hub is to match the local startups to VC and corporate VC investors as well as corporates looking for new technology solutions.

Helsinki Business Hub helps to match Finnish growth companies with the most relevant global investors and help international startups set up in Helsinki.

As a startup, Helsinki Business Hub can help you get access to international investors who will not only provide you with finances but also the opportunity and support needed to expand to a new market to scale.

Miska will be sharing his experience on international funding, what startups need to know about attracting foreign investors and how Helsinki Business Hub is facilitating this experience and connection.
