In today’s rapidly evolving market, innovation is not just an option but a necessity for companies aiming for international growth. Business Finland’s innovation voucher presents a golden opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to leapfrog into global markets by supporting their innovation projects. But how does this voucher work, and more importantly, how can it be aligned with specialized services to ensure your project’s success?

What is the Business Finland Innovation Voucher?

The innovation voucher is designed by Business Finland to encourage SMEs to innovate. The Innovation voucher is intended for small companies under 5 years old. The amount of the grant is 4,500 euros and the company’s self-financing portion is 1,500 euros. It aims to cover services related to product development, research, and process or business model innovations. The voucher is intended for buying expert services to boost innovation within companies, making it an excellent resource for those looking to enhance their products or services for global competition.

How Does the Innovation Voucher Work?

To access this funding, companies must apply through the Business Finland portal, showcasing a project with potential for international growth. The voucher must be used for hiring external experts or services that contribute to the innovation project. It’s a straightforward process, but success hinges on having a compelling project and choosing the right partners for innovation services.
