  • Investoi koulutusvientiin - Education Finland-rahoittajatilaisuus

    Wed 13 June 2018, –
    Opetushallitus, Hakaniemenranta 6, tila Plaza 5 krs. Helsinki

    Aika: 13.6.2018, klo 10.00 – 12.00

    Paikka: Opetushallitus, Hakaniemenranta 6, tila: Plaza (5. krs)

    Education Finland-kasvuohjelma järjestää rahoittajille suunnatun tilaisuuden, jossa kasvuohjelman jäsenyritykset esittelevät yritysideoitaan potentiaalisille rahoittajille.

    Suomalaisen koulutusviennin tarjooma on viime vuosina kehittynyt huimasti. Kaikille kouluasteille löytyy tuotteita, palveluita ja konsepteja koulunrakennuksesta digitaaliseen oppimiseen. Education Finland -kasvuohjelma on suunnattu koulutusviennin kasvuun tähtääville yrityksille, korkeakouluille, koulutuksen järjestäjille ja yhteisöille, joilla on koulutusviennin kasvutavoite.

    Keskimääräinen kasvu on ollut n. 20%, ja ne jäsenet, joilla on ollut vertailuarvo eli myyntiä vuonna 2016 kasvu on ollut vuosina 2016-2017 232%. Kansainvälisesti koulutusviennin monilla muodoilla on kasvupotentiaalia. Yksittäisten tuotteiden ja palveluiden myynnistä on tapahtunut jo siirtymää kokonaiskonseptien toteuttamiseen (esim. suomalaislähtöinen päiväkoti tai kouluketju ulkomailla). Ohjelman päämarkkina-alueet ovat Kiina, Kaakkois-Aasia, Persianlahden alue ja Latinalainen Amerikka.


    Tarvetta vientitoiminnan rahoittamiseen on sekä innovaatio- että myyntivaiheessa (esim. johtuen käyttöpääomatarpeesta). Konseptien osalta kysymykset liittyvät kaupan riskien hallintaan ja takauksiin. Myös yhtiön omistusrakenteen ja pääomarakenteen näkökulmasta esiintyy tarpeita kasvun mahdollistaviin investointeihin ja sijoituksiin. Koulutusorganisaatiolähtöiset yhtiöt ovat kiinnostuneet instrumenteista, jotka ovat mahdollisia osittain julkisomisteisille yhtiöille. Alkuvaiheessa oleville tärkeää on taas start up-vaiheen rahoituspalvelut.


    Lämpimästi tervetuloa kuulemaan pitchauksia ja verkostoitumaan koulutusvientiyritysten kanssa!

    ERTICO ITS Europe organises either an ITS World Congress or an ITS European Congress every year.

    The ITS World Congress rotates between Europe, the Asia Pacific region and the Americas, returning to Europe every three years.

    The ITS World Congress is held in Europe in the years where there is no ITS European Congress.

    The Congresses provides the ideal opportunity for all stakeholders to come together, discuss and make the necessary contacts to move initiatives forward and to develop their business by exhibiting and demonstrating state of the art ITS solutions. The Congresses also showcase the latest ITS achievements from the city and region hosting the Congress, and can help increase awareness of ITS in the Host region itself.

    The ITS Congresses consist of three main areas:

    • Congress programme sessions and presentations of the latest developments in ITS
    • Demonstrations – showcases of current ITS technology being developed and deployed throughout the world)
    • Exhibition – exhibition booths and dedicated sessions/events

    Participating in these three areas offers a unique opportunity to show and explain the latest technologies and services, with a slightly different focus for each.

    During the Congress, ERTICO Partners also have the opportunity to arrange more focused ancillary events before, during and after the Congress, as well as having access to meeting rooms, lounge areas and hospitality rooms. ERTICO develops specific mobile applications, networking facilities, webinars, videos, interviews and articles on both topics in focus at the Congress but also on the different companies participating. This provides the ERTICO Partners with yet another means to promote their technologies and services.
