Aalto’s Entrepreneurship Platform

The Aalto entrepreneurship community is supported by the Entrepreneurship Platform to complement multi-disciplinarity and collaboration efforts across  Aalto University.

Our Mission

The mission of the platform is to act as a central contact, information  and focus point to support cross organisational and unit level collaboration in all Aalto entrepreneurship activities:

“connecting teaching, research, student and university driven practice and the external community towards common goals”

The Entrepreneurship platform is based in Otaniemi, Espoo, in the A Grid building, Otakaari 5 in the Entrepreneur co-working space, 3rd floor.

The platform website, Aaltopreneur will act as a One Stop Shop for guidance on Aalto’s ecosystem and all news and events happening within the total Aalto entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem.

During 2019 we will be creating with Aalto ARTS an interactive, audio-visual guide for students, researchers and startups to explain the variety of ways to journey through our ecosystem and these will be ready and available on Aaltopreneur .

Our aim is to help students, researchers and the wider Finnish public make full use of the facilities and expertise that Aalto University can bring to bear in terms of understanding entrepreneurship, pathways to technology commercialization and starting up impactful and successful businesses.
