StartUp Week


StartUp Week is an amazing opportunity!


StartUp Week brings educational organizations and incubators together in Helsinki to get inspired, learn, benchmark and network.

At the event you’ll get

  • Inspiration and information about the future of education and entrepreneurial learning
  • Introduction to Haaga-Helia StartUp School concept
  • Ideas on building an entrepreneurial mindset, group coaching methods, accreditation of prior learning, pitching and event organisation
  • Network of international colleagues
  • Overview of the global startup scene in SLUSH



StartUp Week 2017 was a success!


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!




The next StartUp Week is on 3.-7.12.2018 again on the same week with the World’s largest startup event, Slush.


  • StartUp Week starts on Monday 3 December with an introduction to StartUp School’s way of teaching.
  • On Tuesday and on Wednesday all participants will attend Slush event. The ticket is included in the price of StartUp Week.
  • On Thursday, which is the Independence Day in Finland, we go through key take-aways from Slush, and of course celebrate the Finnish Independence.
  • On Friday we will dive deeper into StartUp School offering, and demonstrate ways of implementing what you have learned into your way of teaching.

(This is a preliminary program. More detailed program will be provided closer to the event.)
