LAUNCH OF THE FIRST EVER INDO-FINNISH
MARKET ENTRY ACCELERATION PROGRAMME
ENGAGEMENT OF ECOSYSTEM PLAYERS DURING THE LAUNCH EVENT
17 October, 2017
Earlier this year, GOInternational Finland successfully launched the Nordic India Innovation Forum – a high level thought leadership platform building the ecosystem between the Nordics and India. That ecosystem is being materialized through the first ever 8-month Market Entry Indo-Finnish Acceleration Programme.
Now as India’s digital economy soon becomes the third biggest in the world, massive urbanization is introducing new challenges in the areas of building 100 Smart Cities, offering dynamic Education Innovation for its 356 million youth population and effective and affordable 21st century Healthtech solutions. We are harnessing these challenges together utilizing Finnish know-how through our Market Entry Acceleration Programme for Series-A Start-ups, SMEs and Corporations.
On the 17th of October, we are officially launching the Acceleration Programme with an evening in the elegant Kämp hotel. Through a reverse panel, ecosystem players, solution seekers and solution providers can deep dive into specific projects and learn how to participate in this programme. Finnish companies will get a platform to present their products and services and gain awareness among investors and decision makers.
This event is by invitation only.
