A lunch event was organised for American investors during the UN week for presenting Finnish startup companies to them. Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen says investors were given tips on how to find Finnish startups they can invest in and help to expand abroad. He estimates that the fairly rigid labour market in Finland, and other Nordic countries, may be one challenge from a foreign investor’s perspective. Mr Mykkänen points out that a Scandinavian way of thinking seems to be in fashion in the United States and that Finnish companies are starting to be ready to market things even in the US.
