The University of Helsinki is strengthening its entrepreneurial ecosystem. We are building new services to both provide topnotch support for university-based entrepreneurs especially at the early stage.
The strong backbone of the entrepreneurial ecosystem will be new Campus Incubators. The incubation path starts with Pre-incubation Programs providing intensive support for early-stage teams of University of Helsinki students, staff, researchers, PIs or professors lasting 6–8 weeks. The Incubator Programs will provide long-lasting mentoring for more established teams through 6 + 6 months programs. All pre-incubators and incubators are campus-specific and located on site, with focus on topics most relevant to each respective Helsinki University campus. University’s aim is also to create multidisciplinary programs for cross-sectoral innovation and development.
The Campus Incubators will be built by the University of Helsinki with the support of the City of Helsinki. The teams involved are the University’s Innovation & Entrepreneurship team, Helsinki Think Company and Helsinki Innovation Services with support from faculties. The first Kumpula pre-incubation program will be launched in April 2022, and Kumpula incubation program will be launched after Midsummer.
