Finland the Digital Hub of Northern Europe
Finland has reinvented itself in just one short century – and we’re still at it. Our national character and Northern heritage have boosted us to the top of all kinds of country rankings from education to innovation. Finns have always been among the first to adapt new technology – whether bicycles or computers.
Finland’s game industry has drawn a boatload of well-deserved praise. One of the latest mega hits is the city-building game Cities: Skylines, a million-seller right from the start. But that’s only one of the latest games to join the growing list of successes. Despite its tiny population of 5.5 million people, Finland is arguably one of the global hotspots in the game industry.
However, games are far from being the whole picture. Finland is engaged in becoming the digital hub of Northern Europe based on its know-how in digital healthcare, next-generation wireless networks and the industrial internet, let alone the internet of bins. Investing in Finland or deploying R&D and business activities here is often a smart move. Just ask GE, Intel, Samsung and many more.
