Wood Joensuu

Sustainable Business Model Workshop

Paikka:Network Oasis, Orange Hall, Joensuu Science Park, building 3A

The NOMADI project supports companies in the forest-based sector by seeking new solutions through the digitalization of forest services. The project also helps creating new marketing and business concepts, supporting new bioeconomy startups and the scale-up of innovations. Particularly ideas targeted towards remote private forest owners and forest management services and tools are welcome.

Are you a student and consider entrepreneurship in the circular forest-based bioeconomy, but are not entirely sure how?

Do you have a vague idea and want to test if it could be viable?

Join us at the networking workshop, for help and feedback from experts!
