Development and innovations are vital to the success of a business. In order to develop and evolve, a business must have a clear overall view and understanding of its current position and where it is heading. At times, outside expert help is needed in order to see the big picture. Use the Enterprise Finland development-assessment tool in order to get an overall view on the development needs of your company.

EnterpriseVantaa will give you personal support and assist you in all the practical matters related to developing a company whether you ponder about expanding your business activities, applying for funding, succession or finding new premises. Business counceling is confidential and free of charge.

Vantaa features several inspiring development environments that may be just the right options for the growth and development of your company. At Turbiini Startup Accelerator, the raw version of your business idea and your start-up will be accelerated towards success.

The City of Vantaa is also involved in many capital-region joint projects in which there is also room for companies to be active. For instance, the Six City Strategy (6Aika) and the capital-region Smart&Clean Foundation offer development-oriented and growth-oriented companies concrete ways in which to participate.

The Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) Development Services are also available to entrepreneurs.

Cooperation with students is also a good way to develop a company’s business operations. In the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences Innovation Project Minno students of the relevant field further develop your company’s idea. Ideas that are generated by students are also used at the Laurea University of Applied Sciences Spinno Accelerator.
