Team Finland in Israel goals and services

Our goal is to strengthen the commercial and economic relations between Finland and Israel, support Finnish companies that want to enter the Israeli market and promote Finland’s image in Israel. Our task is to also enhance the Finns’ knowledge and interest in the Israeli market.

Israel has great interest in cooperation with Finland, which is well-regarded in Israel for its research and innovation as well as its top ranking in education. The most important focal point of cooperation with Israel is technology-based. Like Finland, Israel has a large number of technology companies and a blossoming environment for start-ups.

Team Finland works to increase the visibility of Finland in Israel. It promotes contacts between Finnish companies in Israel and relevant organizations in different sectors. Bilateral R&D agreements offer a good basis for this cooperation. Besides the traditional cooperation sectors, Team Finland aims to increase the activities of companies as well as cooperation in the venture capital, high tech and innovation sectors, especially in such areas as bio- and medical technology as well as environmental and clean technologies. Furthermore, there has been great interest in the Finnish education system in Israel.

Team Finland also aims to promote Israeli investments in Finland.

Finland and “the Finnish model” have a very good reputation in Israel. Team Finland supports this brand by targeting Israeli actors in business, economy, science, culture and education. The Embassy of Finland promotes Finland by disseminating information through its website, Facebook-pages, a varied assortment of brochures and publications, as well as by organizing events, seminars, delegations and workshops.

Team Finland binds together all of the players to promote Finland better than before. In Israel, the Team Finland network includes the Embassy, the Honorary Consuls of Finland in Israel.

The Team Finland in Israel-network services include reports about market opportunities, making new contacts, problem-solving and partnership.

The Embassy has facilities (pdf 1 MB) that Finnish companies can rent for export promotion events (in Finnish).
