If you would like to send your business plan confidentially via security email, please request it at yrityshelsinki@hel.fi. Attach your business plan to the reply email, so we will receive it secured. The connection is protected with TLS encryption. Due to security reasons, the reading of the message is limited, and it can be read for 30 days at most.

  • The advisor will study your business plan in advance and discuss it with you in detail during the meeting. They will challenge and instruct you on how to develop, improve or possibly change it.
  • After any changes have been made, you will have a tool that you can use on your way to becoming an entrepreneur and starting your own business.
  • Please remember that drafting a solid business plan with calculations is a prerequisite for receiving funding.
