THE SMALL BUSINESS CENTER FOUNDATION

The purpose of the SBC Foundation is to offer financial support for research promoting SMEs’ business. The Foundation was established in 1986 and since then it has provided grants mainly for doctoral or licentiate thesis research focusing on entrepreneurship and development of SMEs.

SMEs are crucial for our country’s success. To maintain and increase the competitiveness of our country even bigger investments will be needed on the research of SMEs and entrepreneurship.

The SBC Foundation is significantly supporting research of entrepreneurship and SMEs. Donations are deductible in the income taxation, and they strengthen the research resources in this theme.

You are warmly welcome to support the SBC Foundation by contacting the Foundation’s representative: Anne Gustafsson-Pesonen, +358 40 8344 217.
