Vigo is a new type of acceleration program designed to complement the internationally acclaimed Finnish innovation ecosystem. The programme bridges the gap between early stage technology firms and international venture funding.
The backbone of the programme is formed by the Vigo Accelerators, carefully selected independent companies run by internationally proven entrepreneurs and executives. These Accelerators help the best and the brightest start-ups to grow faster, smarter, and safer into the global market. The Accelerators are not consultants -- they are co-entrepreneurs who invest in the companies they work with to guarantee common goals and passionate development effort.
The Finnish Ministry of Employment and Economy launched the Vigo Programme in 2009. PROFict Partners Oy manages the execution of the program.
The current Vigo Accelerators are:
