Yelp Launches in Finland
PR Newswire
HELSINKI, June 6, 2012
- The final piece of Yelp's Nordic puzzle slots into place
HELSINKI
,
June 6, 2012
/PRNewswire/ -- Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP), the company
that connects consumers with great local businesses, today announced the
availability of Yelp Finland (http://www.yelp.fi). Beginning today, Finns are able
to create accounts on Yelp.fi to share their opinions about great local
businesses and services. Yelp's free iPhone and Android applications have also
been made available in
Finland
, as well as its free suite of business owner tools:
Yelp for Business Owners (http://biz.yelp.fi).
"We are pleased to bring Yelp to
Finland
and complete the final piece of our
Nordic puzzle," said Miriam Warren, Vice President of New Markets. "As the
World Design Capital of 2012,
Helsinki
in particular is a vibrant and diverse
urban environment that we feel is ideally suited to host, entertain and grow its
own Yelp community.
Finland
is also one of the few countries in the world
whose land area is still growing, by almost seven square kilometers a year,
meaning there will always be a new bit of
Finland
for Yelpers to find, experience
and share."
The site supports Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Dutch, French, German,
Italian, English, and Spanish, providing users access to local insights in any one
of these languages.
Finland
is the seventeenth country to host a dedicated Yelp
community, the fourteenth in
Europe
, as the company continues to deliver on
its international growth strategy.
While available throughout
Finland
, Yelp will focus its initial community building
efforts in
Helsinki
-- a city-by-city approach that the company has used to
launch in markets throughout the world.
