*ship Startup Festival ship is being loaded again

Expectations are high and our crews are ready when the start-up event *ship heads its course after two remote years towards kotka Steam Brewery 5-6 May 2022. Kymenlaakso’s biggest event for pre-and-early-stage start-ups is on the way.

 

What’s on the show this year?

Start-up companies from all over Finland sailed after the programme we organised in Kotka in May. As in previous years, we invite the best mentors in their fields to ensure that teams get the best possible support during (and after) the event. The programme for the two-day event includes mentoring clinics and Master Class workshops for start-ups, as well as the Pitch Captain competition, which has become a crowd favourite.

In addition, this year we will bring a *ship Showroom section to the event as a novelty, where students can come and present as well as sell products in the showroom area of the event. We warmly welcome companies and e.g. companies. products of designer students.
