Online services at your disposal whenever you need them
Business premises and plots
We will help you find the best possible solution for you, whether you are looking for a fully finished office space or a bigger site for your company. BusinessOulu maintains a free service called Marketplace for Business Premises and Plots, in which entrepreneurs and private companies as well as individuals can advertise vacant premises in the Oulu region.
BusinessPlaza is the portal for businesses’ ownership changes, maintained by BusinessOulu. The databank of the site offers information on both business acquisitions and generational changes as well as their different phases. The portal also has a marketplace where you can add a business that is for sale or a note expressing your intention to buy one.
Go to BusinessPlaza (only in Finnish)
The database already contains information on nearly 1,000 companies in the Oulu region. Companies are responsible for updating their own data. You can add your company and its logo to the database if it has not yet been registered. Have your logo ready in .jpg, .gif or .png format before you start entering the data. By supplying the database with basic company information, the company receives a user ID in order to make updates. The database is free-of-charge for companies. The service is brought to you by the BusinessOulu city-owned enterprise.
