To help small businesses survive the coronavirus outbreak, Telia Finland, an ICT & media corporation, gives away their national advertising space in Finland. The goal is to help at least 100 companies during the first week of the campaign. Discussions with other corporations to join the cause are already taking place.

“TBWA\Helsinki presented the concept only a few days after the Finnish government set new restrictions regarding the Covid-19 outbreak. We decided that it is both our responsibility and at the core of our company values to help these entrepreneurs get back on their feet. We want to do our part in ensuring that businesses and people in Finland are able to get through these hard times.” explains Jari Rapo, vice-president and the head of enterprise business at Telia Finland.

Small businesses are at the center of attention. The campaign is built solely on content that is self-produced by entrepreneurs using remote tools.

The first phase of the campaign began on 23 March, and each week will be dedicated to selected small businesses that have the opportunity to gain visibility on national television, national and local newspapers, social media and Telia’s own website. The campaign will go on for approximately one month.
