Talent Tampere Export Gateway offers companies a fruitful, yet informal way of cooperation with Tampere based international talents.The program benefits both the talents and the participating companies.

Export Gateway – a new lean way of starting internationalisation projects together with Talents and Business Tampere

Finland is dependent on export markets. New opportunities for physical and immaterial projects open every day – in various market areas. For companies it is hard to choose where to go next or how to start exports. Hands-on knowledge and passionate talents are needed to start the engine. The Export Gateway benefits both the companies and the talents. Companies and entrepreneurs receive new ideas and essential evaluation and sparring on their business. Talents on the other hand receive important experience from local businesses and have a chance to influence a company’s success story, and if all goes well, receive internships or even a job.
