Start-up advice

Expert advice and training for starting up your company.

Once your business idea is clear and you have a preliminary business plan, book an appointment to meet with a New Business Centre counsellor.

We'll check your calculations, help you touch up your business plan, and guide you in the practicalities of starting up a business.

These counselling services are provided to you free of charge. Our councillors, working for the New Business Centre of a Thousand Lakes, have already helped over 8,000 new businesses get started in the Jyväskylä region.
