Internationalisation and growth services for small and medium-sized enterprises
Our business idea is to offer small and medium-sized enterprises a reliable and cost-effective way to internationalise. This is why we carry out most of our projects in cooperation with the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres).
Due to our customers' wishes we have carried out internationalisation and export programmes for Poland and Czech markets, for example. These programmes last 9—12 months, during which a customer/market research is executed in the target country, potential partners (agents, representatives, importers and retailers) are looked for and met. The programme also includes a few days of training with country-specialists describing the target market, legislation, culture and business practices. To partly compensate for the costs to the firms we have applied support from the Employment and Economic Development Centres.
Euro-Fincontact Ltd carries out the following research, training and consulting projects:
- Internationalisation of SMEs
- Merchandised export programmes for SMEs
- Market and competitor analysis in most EU countries and in Russia
- ELY Centres' merchandised specialist services.
The Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) are responsible for the regional implementation and development tasks of the central government. Finland has a total of 15 ELY Centres, which are tasked with promoting regional competitiveness, well-being and sustainable development and curbing climate change.
