Start-up grant

The start-up grant is granted to new entrepreneurs by the City of Espoo and Uusimaa TE Office. The purpose of the grant is to support new entrepreneurs during the early stages of their full-time entrepreneurship when their business is not yet generating much income. The start-up grant encourages them to continue as entrepreneurs. You have to apply for the start-up grant and wait for the decision before starting as a full-time entrepreneur.
