    The YEi Start in France program is open for Finnish science-based start-up companies

    Business Finland, the Institut Francais de Finlande and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs are opening the YEi (Young Enterprise initiative) program in Finland this year! 

    The YEi Start in France program, founded in 2005, is an accelerator for young science-based companies interested in growing their business in France and Europe. YEi Start in France provides a personalized immersion week in France including training sessions, networking and one-on-one meetings that will allow each laureate to benefit from an extensive customized business network and connections to the best resources in Europe. This immersion program will be held at the beginning of November 2018 in Paris and one French region whose innovative ecosystem best fits the needs of each laureate.

    Its objectives are to encourage the establishment of the winners of the competition in France, to facilitate the construction of research partnerships with French actors and to promote the attractiveness of France in the countries where the competition is organized.

    France is a dynamic, innovative environment centrally located in Europe with attractive incentive packages for foreign investors, entrepreneurs and young businesses.

    If you are a young science-based Finnish start-up then you can apply to the YEi program by sending the attached application form to before May 29th 2018. Up to 3 science-based Finnish start-up will be selected this year!
