Pre-accelerator is your starting point for turning your idea into a startup. We bring the tools, coaches, workshops, peer-support and 1-on-1 mentoring. It’s intensive, it’s challenging, it’s fun.

Now is the time to go from planning to doing.

You will join a batch of 15-20 startup teams working on their own ideas. Three weeks will have six online workshops. There we will cover user discovery, team building, testing your idea and value proposition.

Workshops take place online and after 14:00 (Finnish time), making it possible to join from anywhere. For teams in Tampere, we also offer a chance to work from the Platform6 startup house.
