Development plan, Start-up Plus service

When you have received a decision about receiving a startup grant, you are eligible for the new Start-up Plus service. Contact the job center, which granted you the startup money, and tell them that you wish to develop your business further.

The Posintra services for budding entrepreneurs now also include creating a free development plan. About 2-3 months after the founding of the company we meet again. During the meeting we will focus on your business and area of expertise – in the clientele that you wish for, and how to reach it, for example with the help of digital marketing and social media. You will walk away from the meeting with concrete ideas, because you will receive a development plan for sales and marketing along with suggestions on how to act. The follow-up meetings and expert visits will be agreed upon with the management consultant of the enterprise agency. Our services will remain confidential and free of charge

A Well-Functioning Company

Do you need advice and ideas for developing your business? We are here to help you.

A successful company as goal

A company’s life cycle encompasses many distinct phases. Sometimes innovative ideas or new company premises are needed, at other times more money, and at times also encouragement. There are good times and tough times. Sometimes it is necessary to let go and move the company forward for it to live and breathe. – Normally we are looking for growth and profitability for businesses, says Antti Vaittinen from Posintra business development consultation, and adds: but we are always looking for success!

From near it is hard to see the big picture, and therefore outside support and surveying the situation from outside is often necessary also for entrepreneurs. Laura Pesonen, the owner of a business called Nannan hepeneet, wanted to detach her clothes store from an international franchising chain, and felt it was relieving not to have to ponder this alone. – It felt really nice when the people at Posintra looked at my accounts and papers and gave me advice, Antti knew straight away where to head and what to do.

Mentoring

Do you need sparring and support as an entrepreneur? A mentor will help you and challenge you to develop.

Do you need sparring and a new point of view?

We work together with for example Business Mentors Finland by coordinating the operations of almost 20 business mentors located in Eastern Uusimaa. A business mentor is an experienced professional, who functions as the pilot and mentor for the entrepreneur – sparring, guiding and coaching him or her. Mentoring is free of charge for entrepreneurs driving small and micro enterprises. 

In 2017 business mentors helped altogether 1139 businesses in the country and used almost 18 000 hours for this work. Most commonly the business mentors helped small businesses employing less than five people. Eastern Uusimaa has had organized business mentor activity already for over 5 years. During this time over 80 companies have been sparred.

Projects

Posintra aims at helping local companies grow and succeed. Part of our work is developing the operational environment of companies – whether this means the physical environment, new technology, new operating models or future know-how. This work is done through projects.

From ideas to actions

Projects normally last from half a year to two years. The project does not give its administrator or its partners direct profits, but the results will be seen for example in the increased know-how of the company, in production development, or in increased sales potential.

Yearly hundreds of companies take part in our projects. The project operations focus especially on growth industries and growing companies. If you want to turn your ideas into reality, do not hesitate to contact us!
