StartUp Week brings educational organizations and incubators together in Helsinki to get inspired, learn, benchmark and network.
Last year keynote speakers included Ph.D Pasi Sahlberg and Peter Vesterbacka. Our participants from Africa, South-America and Europe gave us such an amazing feedback that we decided to organise StartUp Week again.

The first StartUp Week was organised in December 2017 and it gathered participants from South Africa, Germany and Bolivia to gain insight into entrepreneurial way of teaching and learning. During the week, Haaga-Helia signed a MoU with Tshwane University of Technology and EduExcellence signed a MoU with Universidad de la Cordillera.
Both universities are very keen on building their own StartUp Schools so we can really say that our first StartUp Week was a success!
