Currently available in Uusimaa region in Finland.

How does it work?


Register and get matched

We will match you with a person from the same industry.


Meet for an hour over a cup of coffee

We suggest a time, but you decide when and where you will meet. Use our conversation guide as support.


Share and get contacts

After the meeting, the Door Opener can, if possible, share additional contacts with the Participant. Use our email templates as support.

Dörren is for you:


I am already professionally established in Finland. I want to expand my network and broaden my perspective while helping a foreign born professional by sharing knowledge and contacts within my own industry.


I was born abroad and want to meet people in my professional industry. I would like to broaden my network and learn more about my industry and local working customs. By doing so I increase my chances of finding a job that matches my skills and qualifications.


We want to explore the benefits of diversity in our organisation and the new opportunities, skills and employees or members that may come with it. Let us know more about how Dörren can support our organisation! For more information click here.

Dörren makes it easier for foreign-born persons to expand their professional network in Finland but Dörren also helps locals discover the skills and competences possessed by foreign-born people in Finland.
