The City of Tampere is promoting services and encouraging international background entrepreneurs in their business activity by organizing POP-UP INFO DESK.


A survey-based study by the City of Tampere Employment and Growth Services and Federation of Finnish Enterprises shows that many foreign entrepreneurs consider hard running a company in Finland. 

Managing taxes, searching for funding, understanding the Finnish business culture and finding reliable information are the most common difficulties identified by entrepreneurs.

 At the Pop-up info desk you can receive advice, guidance or get practical help on business matters.
