Team Finland in Kenya

The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields. The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Finpro, Tekes, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.

The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see: services.team.finland.fi.

Objectives of the Team Finland network in Kenya

Kenya is East Africa's largest and most advanced economy. In recent years, Nairobi has strengthened its position as a regional business hub and Kenya’s growing middle class, increasing regional trade and infrastructure development keep supporting the promising economic growth. Finnish companies have high technology and expertise that complement the areas where Kenya strives to develop.

In Kenya, Team Finland promotes the growth of Finnish businesses especially in the areas of infrastructure construction, energy, forestry, water and ICT. Finland’s long-term development cooperation with Kenya has partly focused on the same sectors, and thus Team Finland enhances the collaboration of a variety of Finnish actors.

Team Finland's main target groups are authorities and business organisations in Kenya and in Finland. Team Finland promotes the country brand and image of Finland through our diverse network of journalists, as well as our web site and Facebook page. Team Finland supports the links between various Finnish and Kenyan actors, to spread the positive image of Finland in Kenya and on the other hand to increase the awareness in Finland about the business opportunities in Kenya.

Team Finland's work in Kenya has a strong East African regional perspective, and we seek cooperation with the other Finnish Embassies and actors in the region.
