Commercial Services & Partnerships

We believe in collaboration. It means providing more meaningful offering to our startup teams and students through an extensive external network. We are a platform where students, startup alumni, companies and other stakeholders find each other. Being a hub for different stakeholders fosters innovations and broadens mindsets. As the world gets increasingly complex, we see that bringing people together for a common theme – startup entrepreneurship – is a way to create something bigger than trying alone.


StartUp School is a part of the UBI Global incubator network and we collaborate with companies like OP Financial Group, Tieto, Elisa and HRM Partners. We recognize the benefits of collaboration and we love to help our peers to be the best in what they are doing.


If you are interested in collaboration with Startup School, please contact our collaboration manager Timo-Pekka Uotila (timo-pekka.uotila @

We have excellent co-operation between startups, cities, corporations and research institutes, which makes Helsinki very strong in order to solve great global challenges.

– Marja-Liisa Niinikoski, the CEO of Helsinki Business Hub
