Startup BOOM 2021

XAMK’s entrepreneurial spirit in one event



Startup BOOM 2021 is a fully online experience combining inspirational speakers and entrepreneurial content from Xamk to the students.

In addition to listening to our speakers with inspiring topics, you’ll be able to also go through our multiple RDI -projects that may offer you for example internships, credits, thesis topics, etc.

You don’t have to be a business owner to enjoy the content BOOM brings you.
Even though the topics are presented by people on different levels of entrepreneurship, the content offers insights for students in any field.

“When I talk about entrepreneurship I talk about life. We have too many prejudices about what other people do and think. I want to remove the culture of fear from people’s lives by showing my own vulnerability and the mistakes I’ve made along the way. I’ve made mistakes, but hey, here I am, alive and kicking.” (Source)
