Finland’s cleantech companies benefit from seed funding opportunities

Three new cleantech investment funds were established in Finland in 2010.

According to the report by Cleantech Scandinavia, the technology areas which attracted the most investor attention in 2010 were solar and wind energy, electric vehicles, biofuels and biogas, as well as cleantech enablers such as manufacturers of sensors, transistors and transformers, developers of monitoring systems and specific software solutions, all targeting the growing cleantech industry as their main customer.


Lahti Science and Business Park is the leading Cleantech technology centre of the Nordic countries and is developing the Lahti region into a world-class centre for environmental business and research. It coordinates the cleantech cluster in Finland and works closely with Cleantech Invest and Cleantech Scandinavia. The next Cleantech Venture Day that presents the most promising companies in the sector, investor viewpoints and new technologies will be held in Lahti in April 2012.
