Many new companies were established in the Helsinki region in 2019

In the fourth quarter of 2019, approximately 3,500 companies were established in the Helsinki region. Clearly more new companies were established than in the corresponding quarters of 2018 and the rate has been increasing since 2015. However, fewer companies were established in the last quarter of 2019 than in the exceptionally active third quarter. Most of the new companies were established in the service sector.

More new companies than last year in the entire country

Approximately 9,000 companies were established in the entire country in October–December 2019. This is slightly less than in the previous quarters, but still more than in the previous year. More new companies were established in Finland in 2019 compared to the previous year. The share of new companies in different sectors is mostly the same in the entire country and in the Helsinki region.
