Eight Finnish tech companies expected in Kenya


Finpro, the Finnish export and investment promotion agency, is bringing eight Finnish technology companies to Nairobi, Kenya as part of a new trade mission that aims to assist Kenyan telecom operators in improving their operational efficiency, enabling new business models and developing increasingly sophisticated value-added services for their customers.

The participating companies bring to the table a broad spectrum of specialized expertise that can help create value for the mobile operator business in multiple ways. The trade mission is a part of Finpro’s Connectivity from Finland Growth Program that aims to find new business opportunities for Finnish companies specializing in communications technologies.

Scheduled between October 3rd and 7th, the visit will pick up from where Finpro’s previous trade mission into Kenya left off in May 2016.

Mr. Kimmo Aura, Finpro’s Connectivity from Finland Program Director says, “In May, our goal was to open and establish connections into the Kenyan telecom market. The response back then was very positive, and we are now committed to actively pursue continuous long-term cooperation opportunities”.
