The Kiito funding service is intended for SMEs and Midcap* companies that have been operating for over five years and aim to enter the international markets. Kiito funding enables companies to develop a vision and strategy for international growth, enhance their growth capabilities and map out demand on the export markets. Funding can be used e.g. for the creation of a business plan or internationalisation strategy, carrying out market surveys, the creation of a prototype or testing of the idea with the customer or R&D associated to market validation. The maximum amount of Kiito funding is EUR 100,000 and it can cover 50% of the total project costs. The maximum funding limit will therefore be reached if the project has a total budget of EUR 200,000. The application for funding is made by using the Tekes online services.
