City of Iisalmi

Looking for a startup with an app to promote the Miracle of Iisalmi

The City of Iisalmi is looking for an app that will enable residents to influence and participate in municipal decision-making, as well as provide an interactive communication channel. To ensure relevant and up-to-date content, the application must allow targeted communications. The intended users that the app is aimed at include both local residents and visitors, such as leisure and business travellers.

The app solution must already be working and ready to launch. The startup should ideally also have other customers, preferably municipalities and cities of a similar size to Iisalmi. We are excluding sole traders from this bid, as we do not expect one developer to be able to meet our stringent product continuity criteria. The app interface must be available in the Finnish language. However, we can communicate with the startup about the app in English, if preferred.

The City of Iisalmi is ready to invest in rolling out the app once a suitable solution is found.

Ideal applicants have a pre-tested product or concept and is looking for potential customers. Jury will also focus on the strength of the mission and business model and team.
