Press Release 29.1.2019

Innovations are the basis for Finland’s growth and the creation of new jobs and welfare. The manufacturing industry has built a foundation for Finland’s welfare, which the world’s leading consulting company McKinsey & Company wants to both support and expand.

‘We want to support the MPIDEA competition in a significant way because this type of contest is important on a national level. Renewal is vital, in many ways. Through our own work we support and improve the competitiveness of those companies that have been building Finnish welfare. At the same time, Finland needs new businesses, and the MPIDEA competition is a great fit for this purpose’, states McKinsey’s Senior Partner Lari Hämäläinen.

Finland should not settle but instead strive for the top and the same goes for the participants of the MPIDEA competition.

‘We will do our best to help create more globally successful Finnish companies’, emphasizes Hämäläinen.

The winner gets to participate in a 5-month growth acceleration program

Now if ever is the time to put effort into the competition entry because the MPIDEA competition is open to all. Any creative idea, innovation, product or service that can create jobs in Finland is welcome. The sky is the limit for the winner as the prize is a McKinsey service that is used by leading Finnish and international companies.

‘We are offering the winning team access to our 5-month long Growth Accelerator Program. In the first stage of the program our business experts will help develop the winner’s business idea. We will strongly spar the winner’s go-to-market plan’, Hämäläinen describes the opportunity for the winner to experience an upward trajectory.

‘The second element of the prize is the coaching we offer; we provide tools for improving the performance of the winning team. Leadership training is an important part of the package’, states Hämäläinen, who is eagerly waiting for the competition’s winner to be announced and for the prize program to start.

‘This is important for Finland and a great thing for us. We are excited to be able to work with you!’, Hämälainen already sends greetings to the future winner.

The industry invites everyone to innovate!

The MPIDEA competition culminates at Finland’s biggest industrial event MPD at the start of June. The winner will be announced at the final in Tampere’s Tähtiareena 5.6.2019.
