Innovation voucher

Take advantage of Business Finland's EUR 5,000 innovation voucher!
The grant amount in the innovation voucher is EUR 5,000 and 100% of the VAT-free amount of the purchased services. Your company can only receive a banknote once. As this is a grant, there is no need to repay the amount.
With the help of the innovation voucher, you always get a Proof-of-Concept version of your application. With a concept certificate, you can prove your ideas feasible. We will design an interface for your application and a possible PWA version that illustrates what the application would look like as a finished product.
Apply for an Innovation Voucher when your company has a new product or service idea aimed at the international market and:
  • You want to find out if your idea can be developed, used, or marketed, for example, through demos, prototypes, testing, or experimentation.
  • It would be best to have an external expert's insight, knowledge, or expertise, such as an opinion, assessment, or testing and measurement service.
What is required of your company?

  • You have been a full-time entrepreneur for at least three months before applying for an Innovation Voucher - or your company has at least one full-time employee whose employment has been valid for at least three months before applying for an Innovation Voucher.
  • Your company's Finnish Customer Rating Alpha is at least A.
