Join us as we are launching Global Founders Community, where all global startup founders based in Finland and the local startup community can come together, exchange ideas and learn through networking. The Community is launched by Business Finland and regional development agencies, however we want all the members in the Community to be active and support each other.

The Launch event will take place on the 29th of November at 15.00 in Maria01. Let’s get to know each other, join in interesting discussions and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere with some “glögi and piparit” as it is the traditional time for “Pikkujoulut” in Finland (Christmas party). 

The event will include about an hour of guided program from 15.30 until 16.30 and the rest of the time is reserved for networking. The participants will also have the possibility to meet up with the advisors of Business Finland and the cities.

15.30 Welcome and introduction of the Global Founders Network
15.40 The importance of communities and networks in the startup world, Marketing Lead Mirella Mellonmaa, Tribe Tampere
