Attracting Foreign Investment into Early-stage Finnish Technology Companies

Writers

Published

How the Finnish venture capital industry can interact with foreign investors in a way that promotes the growth of Finnish technology-based firms? The premise is that the combination of investors’ new willingness to look abroad for additions to their portfolio, and the remarkable visibility of the Finnish high technology industries provides a unique opportunity to create value through the rapid internationalisation of early-stage technology-based firms. The book assesses the needs of early-stage Finnish technology companies, as well as the existing ability of Finnish investors to meet those needs. In addition, the book analyses the global private equity appetite of the top of the venture capital food chain – the U.S. institutional investors – who are providing record amounts of liquidity in that category. Moreover, the book presents a case study of the growth of the Israeli technology-based SME sector.
