Finnish co-working space concept Innovation House Finland is bringing its unique working culture to Singapore.

Innovation House Singapore will open in Singapore’s startup hub Block71 on 8 March. The co-working space offers Finnish startups a platform to grow in Asian markets and opens the door for Asian companies coming to Finland.

A joint venture with Singaporean venture capital firm and startup platform Mercatus Capital, the new co-working space will have a capacity for 200 entrepreneurs.

“Companies coming here first need help in creating a network,” saidPete Karumo, CEO of Innovation House Singapore. “We can help with this. Our team has a strong entrepreneurial background and we know the local ecosystem.”

Innovation House Finland was founded by Petra Erätuli-Kola and Katja Aalto in 2017, to promote an open and collaborative working culture in Finland. It has since grown to host 100 companies and has a community of 500 members at two locations in the Greater Helsinki area of Finland.

“In our service concept, we pay a lot of attention to the wellbeing and coping of startup entrepreneurs; especially in startup companies these are often overlooked,” said Erätuli-Kola, CEO of Innovation House Finland.
