Real Estate Annual Finland 2013

NORDICUM Real Estate Annual Finland 2013 had the opportunity to talk with the American start-up guru Steve Blank about the booming Finnish start-up scene. Known for his sometimes controversial remarks, the maestro did not disappoint. In this issue, we also showcase the powerful new development projects in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area – and beyond. We also cover the new, exciting trends such as re-energising city centres, the promise of high-rise construction and the emergence of shopping centres which move hearts as well as wallets.
