Nordic Gateway

Nordic Gateway is a joint project of Vaasa Region Development Company VASEK, Viexpo and YA! Vocational College of Ostrobothnia.


Growth and competitiveness in the Ostrobothia region are among the highest in Finland. Companies have traditionally oriented themselves towards west, mainly Sweden, which explains the long traditions in commerce between Ostrobothnia and Sweden. Ostrobothnia has a strong will to succeed and its language, culture and entrepreneurial spirit create favorable opportunities for successful collaboration with Sweden and Norway.


In Norway, oil and gas industry, marine industry and building industry need new qualified partners. We at Nordic Gateway help Ostrobothnian companies to enter the Nordic markets. We provide assistance in creating networks in different areas and geographical regions of Norway and Sweden as well as provide the Ostrobothnian companies with necessary information and contacts. An important tool in this work is EnergyVaasa, the leading Nordic energy technology cluster located in Vaasa with its 140 energy technology companies.


The project organizes a number of activities each year, such as training, pop-up events, matchmaking events, seminars, sales cafés and B2B-opportunities for businesses.
