Promoting entrepreneurship friendliness in Päijät-Häme region

Lahti region wants to be the most entrepreneur friendly growth centre in Finland by 2015. MDI wrote action plans for the municipalities to promote entrepreneurship friendliness in Päijät-Häme region. Being entrepreneurship friendly means that every public action that affects the business life takes into account the conditions for growth and competitiveness. It concerns preparation, decision-making, development and services directed to entrepreneurs. During the process MDI visited every municipality and interviewed central policy makers and entrepreneurs.
