Enterprise financing

The purpose of public financing for enterprises is to correct market failures and to share risks with private providers of financing. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment is responsible for ensuring that enterprise and export financing provided by the State of Finland functions effectively, considering enterprises’ financing needs in their different stages of development and the national and international provisions regulating enterprise financing.

The business subsidies administered by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment are extensively allocated to growth-oriented enterprises for developing new business and for strengthening innovation, as well as for promoting the growth and internationalisation of SMEs.
