We are happy to announce that Sooma Oy has been accepted into the Young Innovative Companies (YIC) program of Business Finland (formerly known as TEKES or Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation).
The YIC program identifies Finnish technology companies with high international growth potential and accelerates the development of the companies with access to non-dilutive financing. The program has three phases enabling the companies to access up to 1.25 million euros funding in grants and loan instruments when program objectives are met.
We are delighted to have Business Finland supporting us in our mission to help healthcare professionals and patients worldwide. Over a thousand patients have undergone our therapies since their launch in 2015. The participation in the program is an important milestone for the company. We expect that with the help of the investment we’ll be able to better support our growing distribution network and help more patients worldwide.
