"SMART EVERYDAY LIVING GOES CHINA" DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME FOR COMPANIES
Do you run a company that is seeking or planning international growth? Does your company’s solution also make everyday life sustainable for consumers? In that case you are just the person the “Fiksu arki goes China” (Smart everyday living) development programme is looking for!
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The “Fiksu arki goes China” development programme is looking for companies whose products or services help consumers make sustainable everyday choices. The programme’s aim is to highlight these solutions and support their market entry, future development and the efforts to expand their customer base.
The solutions will be trialled in the programme, first in Finland and then in the Chinese market. For example, they may help consumers improve the ecological sustainability of their everyday life by reducing their carbon footprint or by saving natural resources. We are looking for solutions for living, transport, eating, products, services and other aspects of everyday life.
Three companies will be selected from the applicants to participate in the development programme running this spring. The programme supports internationalisation, and skilled and experienced mentors will help develop a product’s market entry or the efforts to extend the customer base in Finland and China. Trials will be conducted with both Finnish and Chinese consumers.
The application period for the development programme began on 5 February 2019 and ended on 12 March 2019. The programme will be launched during April and the experiments in China will be conducted in May.
