Work, family and studies are the most important reasons for coming to Finland. Migration brings to Finland international talents who can be harnessed both to create new jobs and to spur entrepreneurship and innovations. They can also promote business growth and internationalisation.

Talent Boost Summit 2017 - First of its kind
The Talent Boost Summit is meant to be an annual gathering which would move between the major talent boost cities of Finland. The first Summit was held in Koskenranta, Helsinki in 2017. In 2018 the event will be held in Tampere, and again elsewhere in 2019.
In order to improve awareness of the Boost agenda and programme among private sector actors, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and its partner organisations are hosting talent attraction and retention related events in the related cities in Finland. Talent Boost Summit was the first event ever of this scale in the domain of international talent attraction management in Finland. And therefore also the most concrete example of national level cooperation.
The objective of the Government’s joint Talent Boost programme is to make Finland more attractive to international talents and to channel the expertise of international talents already in Finland to support growth, internationalisation and innovation in Finnish companies. -Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, 2016.
Over 300 people gathered for the Talent Boost Summit 2017. The Summit was held in Helsinki, partly as a culmination of three earlier thematic workshops led by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment of Finland, and at the same time, as a path-opener for the recently established Finnish governmental programme Talent Boost – International talents boosting growth. Among the participants were representatives from cities, companies, higher education institutions, ministries, as well as international talents. Several organisers affirmed that it was the first event at a national level to allow all the relevant stakeholders to come together at once.
