6 Networking and co-operation between different industries. The Sauna from Finland concept aims to create new types of business activity in Finland, and profile Central Finland as the Sauna Province. The Sauna from Finland started as a network but the co-operation strengthened between the different actors to a level which led to the setting up of an association around the concept. The goal of the association is to promote Finnish sauna culture, support the development of services connected to sauna and support and inspire new entrepreneurial activities. Stakeholders in the area mentioned the sauna manufacturers and their important role in interviews when they were talking about the area as sauna region.
