The primary goal of Finland's LA Consulate General is to find links between the two world-class high tech communities, the Finnish and the American, and promote partnerships and alliances between Finnish and US companies, organizations, universities and research institutions. To implement this program we organise events and seminars, conduct research projects and engage in extensive networking especially with the LA tech entertainment community. Promoting Finnish culture in all its different forms is another major function of the Consulate.
The Consulate General in Los Angeles represents Finland in thirteen Western US states where we provide consular services and information on Finland. The Consulate's activities are conducted by our small but capable and energetic staff. As to trade and technology, the experts located in Palo Alto at the Finpro North America, Finland Trade Center (Finpro) and at the office of Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (TEKES) are also at your service.
On our pages you will find information on Finland and high technology, facts about Finland in general and information on consular matters. The events calendar is an important source of information for visitors as well as for us who live on the West Coast.
