About us

We are a community accelerator devoted to supporting early-stage teams in growing their startups in a healthy and sustainable way.

 We do that through our programs:

Red Brick Accelerator is a 10-week coaching program for early-stage startups who are looking for product/market fit. Our goal is to support your startup development and speed it up all the way to first revenue and first investments.

The program includes high quality workshops and mentoring sessions hosted by top-level experienced industry professionals. It ends with a “Demo Day” event where teams get a chance to pitch their ideas to investors.

Red Brick Pre-accelerator is a 3-week program especially designed for teams with an idea, but not sure how to get started and go from talking to doing. Two workshops a week and a lot of peer-support make sure you will have an intensive and exciting experience. After the pre-accelerator, you’re able to decide if you continue the work and apply to the main accelerator program.

Our home is Platform6 startup house, and local teams joining our program get to share co-working space at Platform6 with us. We collaborate with Tribe Tampere and Tampere Entrepreneurship Society to connect new founders with the broad startup community.

In addition to online accelerator programs, we organize open workshops and events for founders online and at Platform6. Topics for those events come from the needs of our alumni and the startup community.

Are you the changemaker?

Red Brick Way 🧱

Built to last.

We preach testing over building. Listening to your customer and learning from them. And taking care of yourself and your team.

Value over hype.

Make an impact – not just money. We can solve enormous problems with startup innovations. So why not do it?

Embrace change.

You are headed for an adventure. Trust the process.

It takes a village.

We rarely do things alone. And neither should our startups. Give first and you will see the magic happening.

Teamwork makes the dream work
