As part of your growth story, it is essential to seriously consider the innovation ecosystem in which you can reach necessary development goals, and have the best competencies and resources.
1. Prioritize a supportive health ecosystem.
A small but vibrant city, Helsinki’s capital region in Finland is a hidden gem for health sector growth, and it’s considered a top destination for digital, pharmaceutical and medical device R&D centers. Global players such as Bayer, GE Healthcare, Siemens, and Roche have significant R&D and production operations in Finland.
In fact, over 750 health and life sciences companies and over 150 active health startups call the Helsinki Metropolitan area home, and the HUS Helsinki University Hospital is one of the largest healthcare organizations in Europe. The hospital was ranked #21 in a global listing published by Newsweek in 2020.
Helsinki Metropolitan features two world-class universities and a vast talent pool of health and tech professionals. Helsinki also hosts one of the best public healthcare and education systems in the world, and it’s the capital of one of the most highly trusted governments and media environments on the planet. Oh, and Finland has been ranked #1 happiest country by The World Happiness report for four consecutive years.
2. Make sure there’s deep tech expertise and an established industry.
