Helsingin Yrittäjät

It’s worth doing business in Helsinki – and being a member of an entrepreneurial organization

The most important task of an entrepreneurial organization is to help businesses have good conditions for succeeding, employing people and creating something new. We advocate and serve with a sensitive ear. We work every day for every business.

Helsingin Yrittäjät ry has been advocating on behalf of all business owners in Helsinki since 1939. We are part of a national entrepreneurial organization and are the only one of the 20 regional associations of Suomen Yrittäjät to operate in a single municipality – Helsinki, our capital city. Our membership consists of more than 5,000 businesses of various sizes and from different industries.
