Register to join Startup Community Booster

Jul 16, 2020

The Finnish startup ecosystem is facing a serious threat due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Major startup events like Slush and Arctic15 are cancelled or minimized; many startups lose funding opportunities, expansion plans, or sales leads.

At the same time, digital services offer us new opportunities!

The City of Helsinki and Espoo, together with Ultrahack, organize the Startup Community Booster, a startup bootcamp to connect prominent players of the innovation ecosystem to co-create solutions for this challenge!

The bootcamp happens on the 4-5 Septemberonline.

We welcome all startups who are experiencing problems due to COVID-19 or having solutions for the problems. Any other stakeholders who want to offer their support for the startup ecosystem are also welcome to join this collaborative effort.

All participating startups are compensated €1000 for their effort. Solutions created from the Startup Community Booster can be implemented in the Uusimaa regions or scaled up globally.

So register to join by 28th August, 2020
