Business Tampere on the Regulatory Essentials in Health Tech training series

Business Tampere, the regional economic development agency, encourages local innovators to establish more businesses in the Region, surrounding them with world-class know-how and support for reaching the global healthcare market. The comprehensive training program on global regulatory essentials in health tech is aimed at local startups and innovators.


Business Tampere and the University of Tampere are encouraging the local startups operating in the health tech industry to proportionate their resources up to the industry requirements via support and training.

Business Tampere, Tampere University and SPARK Finland collaborate with Lean Entries and Labquality to provide an educational program on global regulatory essentials in health tech for local startups and innovators. The success of local startups is one of the driving forces in the Tampere region.


The training series is held in English. It includes a series of online sessions focusing on regulatory topics that are common to all health tech innovators globally. Depending on the needs of the participants, the remaining series will be tailored to take into account topics most relevant to the local industry.

Concurrently, the digital regulatory tool Entries, which starts off from a minute pathway into medical device qualification and classification, is freely available to all local startups, university innovators and students. The number of trainees and Entries subscribers in the Tampere region averages over 100 individuals. The overall satisfaction rate of the ongoing training program has reached 8.8 on a scale from 1 to 10, with training content reaching an average of 9.3.

“I have previously joined entrepreneur and fundraising events organised by Business Tampere and have found them very useful. As a founder and scientist, all information concerning a start-up, besides the core tech that we mainly know thoroughly, like this Regulatory Essentials training series, has been very useful and valuable. Thank you!”

Heikki Pitkänen, the CEO and founder of Lean Entries and a Senior Expert at Labquality describes:

“This is why we want to collaborate with such innovative regions as Tampere. Regulations, just like funding rounds, take time and experience to master, and we can cut that time remarkably for the entrepreneurs by providing the regulatory knowledge in a format that can be digested in a snapshot.”
