City of Helsinki and City of Beijing strengthens collaboration to further exchange insights and knowhow in creating a stronger link between the startup ecosystems.
The collaboration is purposed to generate a global network by linking two ecosystems and provide a wider support for domestic startups when targeting into new markets.
This opportunity will provide Helsinki based startups a “gate-opener” to Asian markets through China, as well as supporting ZPark based startups in entering the European market.
Beijing is one of the top startup ecosystems in Asia and holds a significant domestic market.

Selected startups (Helsinki based and ZPark based) of the Exchange Program will be provided 2 months exchange period free of charge including:
- co-working spaces
- 1-on-1 business coaching from local advisory
- Introductions to the local ecosystem and network
”We are honored to be able to provide Chinese markets´ insights to Helsinki based startups as well as introducing Helsinki’s ecosystem to ZPark startups. This collaboration will significantly decrease barriers for the startups – both ways – when entering a new market.”
