The City of Helsinki offers services to entrepreneurs in all stages of business operations. NewCo Helsinki offers guidance to entrepreneurs launching a local business, as well as start-ups aiming for international growth.
Free-of-charge trainings, versatile events and networking meetings are available for supporting entrepreneurship, as well as an entrepreneurial space and special facilities for start-ups.
The advantages of business consulting services to a founder of a new company are significant. Of the companies founded by customers of NewCo Helsinki, 90% remain active two years after they were founded, and after five years, the figure is 80%. These are considerably higher figures than those for companies founded without using business consulting services.
Approximately 4,000 people aiming for entrepreneurship visit the NewCo Helsinki service point in Kallio every year.
