Investments in Finland rise year by year. Finland receives the highest percentage of VC funding both per capita and in relation to GDP in Europe. Around 70% of venture investment deals and up to 80% of venture investment value in Finland go to companies located in the Helsinki region. ICT and life sciences are the sectors attracting the most venture capital investment.

Of this amount, €113 million came from Finnish VC funds, €180 million from foreign investors, and €54 million from Business angels.
