The Fiksu arki (“Smart everyday living”) competition for companies called out for small companies with big solutions that make our everyday life more sustainable.



What is it about?

Sitra organised the Fiksu arki competition to promote the development of new Finnish solutions for smart everyday living. We looked for smart solutions for living, transport, eating, products, services and other aspects of everyday life.

The best 10 small businesses were selected for the Fiksu arki development programme- During the development programme the winners partnered with large company and received support for development and consumer trials, plus development assistance, worth 10,000 euros.

The winners were selected by a jury that included representatives from Sitra and from the major companies Fazer, Gasum, IKEA, the K Group, OP, Paulig, Realia Group, SATO, Tori.fi, Valio, Viking Line and YIT.
