Cleantech Finland and Finpro have partnered up with the National Olympic Committee of Finland in building up a very unique business platform for Finnish cleantech companies in connection to the Summer Olympic Games 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Finland House is the first ever high-end Finnish hospitality house concept in the history of the Olympic Games. Finland House will be the venue for exclusive business and sport-related events, ministerial and presidential visits, and the Finnish Olympic Team press conferences. As a true highlight, Finland House will also stage the true stars of the Olympic Games by hosting several athlete visits and, in case of the highest success, also the medal celebrations of Finnish athletes.

Cleantech Finland is one of the main partners in the Finland House concept. We want to offer smaller and larger Finnish cleantech companies both an opportunity to join the Finnish Olympic Team in Rio and be present at Finland House and, together with Team Finland Brazil (Finpro Brazil and the Finnish Embassy), we will also provide the companies with high-class business services.  

The companies will have an opportunity to invite their clients, partners and stakeholders to Finland House, hold meetings in an inspiring atmosphere, and showcase their expertise in one of the most eye-catching venues of Rio 2016. Through the contacts of Finpro Brazil and the Finnish Embassy, we also want to support companies by inviting potential buyers to Finland House for thematic cleantech events.

"We see that the participation brings us a great opportunity to promote our brand both in Brazil and Finland. I personally believe that the monetary investment is rather small compared to the visibility we expect to get at different medias and Finland House events," says Carita Lehmusmetsä Evac Brand and Communications Manager.

"We also see this participation as a unique opportunity to network with Brazilian companies and authorities as we have already operations in Brazil and we are constantly looking for new projects within building, offshore and marine industries there."

Finland House is open for the last 10 days of the Olympic Games on 12–21 August. The venue is a neoclassical building, Casa França-Brasil, which was built in 1820 and is located in the downtown of Rio de Janeiro right next to Olympic Boulevard, the heart of the Olympic buzz.

We want also smaller Finnish cleantech companies to join us and take advantage of this very unique business platform. Therefore, we offer a very affordable participation package that costs EUR 10 000. Please contact us for more information regarding Finland House and the included business services.
