Since 2020, Business Finland has run challenge competitions for leading companies that operate globally and have the ability to increase their R&D&I investments in Finland to tackle significant future challenges. The next challenge competition was just announced – do you have what it takes to join?
The so called Veturi funding from Business Finland is 20 M€ for the leading company and 50 M€ for the ecosystem assembled by the leading company. For the second time, the competition also includes a challenger category, with 10 M€ of funding to the challenger company and 20 M€ for the ecosystem. The challenger companies aim to grow into a global player, are solving a smaller or more focused challenge or develop new businesses.
The challenge competitions offer an excellent opportunity for companies to boost topics which are strategically important for them and build new business together with a partner network. The next cut-off date for this challenge competition is on 5th September 2023. This is the time to get started if you want to catch this funding for your innovation programme!
