On Wednesday (8.2) the whole entrepreneurial community from Helsinki region met at Maria 0-1 for the Helsinki Entrepreneurship Community Meeting. An amazing event organised together with most of the entrepreneurship societies based in and around Helsinki. The following organizations’ new board members were present: Helsinki Think Company, Laurea Entrepreneurship Society, Haaga-Helia Entrepreneurship Society, Hanken Entrepreneurship Society and Aalto Entrepreneurship Society. An event truly about networking and coming together for collaboration and brainstorming the future.
The whole project started with a lot preparations, contacting people and gradually putting everything together. On Wednesday 8.2 it was time. The event started with some mingle activities and registration of the participants. Froosh Suomi a good friend of AES, was giving out some of their products for free to the people that had registered! People really enjoyed their products!
The official program of the event begun with a short presentation on why and what the whole fuss is about and continued with presentations by the entrepreneurship societies, introducing their new board members for this year.
The board member and entrepreneurship society presentations were followed with stakeholder pitches, many great presentations by speakers from our startup ecosystem collaborators. Slush, Nuoret Yrittäjät and Startup Sauna to name a few.
After a long row of presentations it then was time for food and drinks which obviously included mingle and more networking. To conclude, these events are important steps in building something as unique as the startup scene and ecosystem in Finland. It requires frequent meetups and get-together’s to keep up to the ever-changing ecosystem.
Thank you to all the Entrepreneurship Societies for organizing, Maria 0-1 for hosting and Holvi for sponsoring the event.
