Services to help your company grow, develop and go global

 Challenges involving the growth, internationalisation and development of your company are there to be conquered. Take hold of your business with the help of our experts.

Business development process - this is how we start

1Analysing the situation

Analysing the current situation is the first thing we will do once you have contacted the expert services of Joensuu Science Park. Your company's development will lie on a secure foundation when it is supported by a comprehensive, fact-based analysis of your current status. We will start our journey on the path of development by analysing whether your company's current business plan is up to date. If the business plan has not been updated in years, the next step will be the initiation of the strategy process.

The analysis will show us the direction in which your company should head on its path towards development. The status analysis will offer us a comprehensive idea of your current situation and the services that you should use. Furthermore, it will tell us how to plan your company-specific development programme and the required actions.

We will propose, guide and develop; you will make the decisions.

2Clarifying the strategy

When an already existing company grows or there is a need to change for other reasons, the business plan and strategy must be revised to suit the new situation. The business plan is revised during a strategy process.

The following may be necessary when creating the business plan, for example:

  • Analysing the environment and competitors (opportunities and threats)
  • Analysing the company (strengths and weaknesses)
  • Determining the goals
  • Specifying the business idea
  • Reviewing different strategy options
  • Financial calculations and forecasts 
  • If necessary, we will outline your future with experts included in the Joensuu Science Park networks.

Contact us if you need to change! We will be happy to help you to reassess the focus areas of your business. 

3Planning and implementing a development program

The necessary development measures, the required resources, budgeting and financing are determined and prioritised based on the business plan. You will be able to benefit from our experience as we survey the financing opportunities and prepare financing applications. We actively develop competence, support internationalisation, mentor, coach and arrange different kinds of expert services.

For more information on what the development measures may entail, please see the bottom of this page!


We always engage in long-term cooperation, and we will also be available to you after the development programme period to assist you in studying the results and comparing them with the set goals. In addition, we will analyse any non-conformances and plan any necessary corrective measures with you.

Regular communication will create a solid foundation for continued cooperation and the planning of new development programmes.
