Making contacts and networking

  • Take advantage of Finnish missions’ and Honorary Consuls’ networks of contacts with local authorities, companies and partners. This network can serve as the local eyes and ears for a company heading for a new market.
  • Give your company credibility by organising networking events: the head of a mission or a high official may attend and lend prestige to the event in different ways, for instance by opening it or giving an address.
  • Participate in Team Finland visits to target markets.
  • Network by attending some of the versatile events organised by the missions.
  • Ask a mission to open doors to contacts that you could not access without assistance.
