In Finland, the majority of new jobs are created by SMEs. Small businesses are the backbone of the economy and cover the majority of Finland's business sector. Qred is a bank for small businesses and has helped tens of thousands of small businesses to grow their business with flexible financing since 2015.
Entrepreneurship and small businesses deserve more place in the spotlight and research.
That's why we established the Qred Scholarship for researching entrepreneurship and businesses.
Qred's Scholarship aims to promote entrepreneurial knowledge and innovation in small businesses.
Qred's Scholarship will be given to a thesis about entrepreneurship or a topic that aims to promote the position of small businesses.
The Scholarship is given to a person who has a research question that stands out from the crowd and is reseraching a previously unexplored issue or approaches a previously studied issue from a different perspective.
