Vaasa Region Development Company

 097A1041 rajattu

The Vaasa Region Development Company (VASEK) was founded in 2003 and is jointly owned by seven towns and municipalities on the West Coast of Finland. VASEK promotes and reinforces growth and competitiveness in the region. This is done by improving the preconditions for business activities in the Vaasa region in cooperation with the regional authorities, municipalities, local action groups and enterprises.

As the region is known for its entrepreunerial spirit and traditions, it is also equipped with a strong will to succeed. Outsourcing and the increasing use of subcontractors contribute to the fact that more and more small and medium-sized companies are being established. Our main objective is to help these SMEs to grow and be a part of the flourishing Vaasa Region - one of the most attractive and innovative environments in Finland for companies and employees.

Vision, mission, values

VASEK's role as the driving force of the region is strong. We know the objectives of our work and we also endeavor to achieve them. Working on one's own does not lead to success and that is the reason why we have an intense cooperation with different actors in the region. We know already how good our region is and how many opportunities are offered here, also for new inhabitants, students and businesses. Our common goal is to spread this information, to strengthen the competitiveness in various fields and offer the best development opportunities possible for the industrial and commercial life of the region.
