Are you thinking of starting a business? What about buying one instead of starting from scratch?

By acquiring a business the probability of success is higher since your business model has already been tested at the market. You will have a brand (that you can develop) and a customer base ready, so you will likely have cash flow since day one! You can focus on developing your business instead of  mere survival.

Business Transfers project Uusimaa, Business Transfers project in rural areas and Startup Refugees organize Business Transfers for Immigrants event on Thursday 9.2.2023 at 17-20 in Fennia house (address: Kyllikinportti 2, Helsinki). You can also join the event online for the first two hours.

Come to learn and ask questions about how to acquire a business, how to fund it, and what support is available for the process. Thomas Thottungal, the owner of Providental dental clinic will share his experiences of buying a company as a newcomer in Finland.

Why to join the event face-to-face: There’s a pop-up business advice service available and a good opportunity for networking with like-minded people. Also snacks are served to keep you going!
