Why confirming your businessplan is important

For a successful business-immigration having just a businessplan is not enough. The Applicant-enterpreneur should by any means confirm that the deisgnated business would be:
1) Profitable enough
2) Would not be a passive income - would need the active participation of the owner in the business in Finland
3) The business is either already running or preliminary preparations for successful and profitable operations are now developed in Finland

This means - the Enterpreneur should carry out market research, contact the potential clients and partners in Finland, appoint meetings. Eventually there should be a proof of profitability, which originates from sales of company services or products.
Besides the bank statements, the Enterpreneur should provide evidence of running or preliminary business agreements, which are the confirmation for company's profitability and success.
