Road to *ship – idea accelerator

Road to *ship  idea accelerator is meant to help student startups and students with passion for entrepreneurship. We want to give you more resources and knowledge to get your idea some momentum! The accelerator aims to get you and your team to the stage of *ship Startup Festival (held August 2020) to compete on the annual 5000€ main prize. You can join the event without joining *ship Startup Festival.


Due to current situation, the accelerator is held online for now. The accelerator consists of two parts:

During KICK OFF we will go over how the accelerator works and the mentors will give out practical tips to develop your idea. KICK OFF will be held online 19.5. at 14.00 – 16.00. (This event is held in English)

COACHING gives your team one-to-one mentoring to help develop your business idea. Mentoring is available in English and in Finnish, depending on your teams preference. COACHING session will be booked separately.
