An entrepreneurship space will open on Vuorikatu


Do you have an idea of your dream job on your mind? What if you established one already during your studies?




The new dimension of entrepreneurship will open on Vuorikatu on 2 Apr 2013. This is the space of the University of Helsinki and the City of Helsinki dedicated to student entrepreneurship, where creative academic madness  is backed up by experience and contacts, and where students' good ideas are merged into great ideas. In this new open innovative environment, curious freshmen get new insights from experienced entrepreneurs, and those who have progressed further in their visions receive valuable advice and interdisciplinary inspiration to their own ideas. New and profitable entrepreneurship can be created from all academic know-how. At Vuorikatu, you will find the opportunities of your own degree.




In this entrepreneurship space, you can set up your own team or join other teams, pitch your ideas and receive support from like-minded students, as well as more experienced entrepreneurs. Get involved to create ecologically, ethically and economically sustainable business and bring forward the whole Finnish society with your know-how.




HYY has established a working group to plan activities for the entrepreneurship space. You can join the group by signing up at
