Welcome to Startup Weekend Helsinki May 24-26!!


Startup Weekend (SUW) is simply the biggest startup movement on the planet. Over 8000 startups have been created in the 1000 plus events worldwide.

So its about time we bring this to Finland! Our organizing group of 10 people started thinking about this in late December. Will acted as a mentor in a Vilnius event in December, and there was a huge amount of energy.

Our organizing team represents 5 countries, and also several regions of Finland, and we are committed to offering an amazing experience to all participants. The main venue is our brand new Open Innovation House which features excellent co-working facilities.

We have a lineup of nearly 15 experienced coaches who we will be announcing shortly, who will help on topics related to design, engineering and business modeling.

And thanks to the both local and global sponsors Google and Microsoft, there will be plenty of food and drinks.

There are literally hundreds of great presentations on line from SUW, but this page should tell you all you need to decide whether to attend.

Be part of the Global Movement and join us for a great weekend!!
