MicroENTRE® is a unique research group that produces research-based knowledge to promote the growth and internationalization of micro-enterprises employing less than 10 people. We aim to remove barriers to entrepreneurship. The motto of our multidisciplinary team is to be a reliable expert near the entrepreneur. At the heart of our business is close co-operation with companies and business service organizations. We coordinate the nationwide MicroENTRE® Growth Network, which includes about 300 micro-enterprises and operates in five counties around Finland. We do applied research with close collaboration with business development organizations. Our research focuses on growth, internationalization and management, as well as the operating environment and societal impact of micro-enterprises, entrepreneurial skills and values, and entrepreneurship education.
At the moment, we coordinate or operate as partners in international RDI-projects funded by Karelia-CBC, InterregNord and the Rural Development Programme for Mainland Finland. We are also lead partners in two Horizon 2020 consortium applying for research funding this year.
We do research with an entrepreneurial heart. Currently, the research team consists of research director and 14 researchers with multi-disciplinary backgrounds. If you are interested in joining our team through MSCA Individual Fellowship, do not hesitate to contact us!
