Startup city Lahti sets the example

Lahti supports the growth potential of new businesses in a way that sets an example for other cities to follow. The City of Lahti and LAB UAS which works in the same building with Starthub, and Isku Oy all support the growth businesses. Our community offers the entrepreneurs a best possible start: free facilities and office space, peer support, coaching and training services as well as a partner network.

This is how here in Lahti we support the growth potential that new businesses have. Does youw hometown do the same?
