We specialize in facilitating business development and collaborations between Finland and Japan. As a business coordinator, we assist clients from planning to implementation, regardless of industry.


Your contact person. Helping you search for the correct business partners, attend and arrange meetings. We help you with all the information gathering and doing the necessary inquiries your business needs.

The language helper. We can help you with communication. We speak Japanese, Finnish, and English (and some Swedish too!)

Someone that takes your idea forward. Going to new markets, branding, thinking about strategies for your products, attending event booths, social media marketing, and websites.

Market research, writing, speaking and creating reports. Finding the correct needle from the haystack. We help your visit to Finland and Japan. We know the locals and how they experience their everyday local environments.



Japanese companies have sought help with matchmaking, and we have helped companies find Finnish graphic designers for their new product designs. We have acted as matchmakers and have assisted projects in succeeding.

Product development support

We have acted as facilitators, organizers, and managers in client projects and helped intercultural communication. You do not need to speak your partners' languages or worry about cultural differences.

MaaS research support

Finland is a well-known MaaS country. Many Japanese companies and think tanks have researched the world's most advanced MaaS city, Helsinki, online and on-site. We have assisted in their research.

Assisting business visits in Finland

We have planned and arranged our clients' extempore business trips to Finland. We plan their trip so that our clients can fully use their time in Finland.
