Team Finland in the United Kingdom

The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields. The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Business Finland, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.

The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see:

Objectives of the Team Finland network in Britain

Finnish companies are interested in the British market as success in the market often indicates a potential to succeed in other foreign markets. There is also an increased interest among the Finnish companies to come to Britain to attract investment to Finland and to Finnish companies. Finland holds a positive image in Britain and there is a keen interest towards Nordic countries.

Team Finland will concentrate on promoting business especially within the games industry, other creative industries (such as design and music export) and the clean tech industry. There is also demand for Finnish know-how within the UK energy efficiency industry. Food industry in Britain presents a new potential area for growth for Finnish companies.

Team Finland network offers Finnish companies a working infrastructure in Britain. The network helps emerging Finnish companies to access the UK market, plays a role in helping Finnish companies attract British investment and builds up the country brand through means of communication.

In Britain, Team Finland consists of the Finnish Embassy, Business Finland in London, Visit Finland, The Finnish Institute in London, the Finnish-British Chamber of Commerce and Finland’s honorary consuls around the country.
