A chance to meet likeminded people, dream big and brainstorm together.

Dream big and brainstorm together!

On 23.9 we co-hosted Innovation Club with Yrkesakademin i Österbotten and Våga Växa.


Welcome to join our new concept: Innovation Club. A chance to meet likeminded people, dream big and brainstorm together. It's for you who are an entrepreneur at heart (established business or not) and need a push forward in these demanding times. And of course - could use some mingle & snacks to lift your spirit (we know we do)!

In our first meet up on 23.9 we are going to focus on sustainable business hacks during the Corona Pandemic. To help us we have the great people of NIC to guide us through an Innovation Workshop AND as a bonus they will tell us all about their own startups Smidyo and Boden Box.

Snacks included.

These are the hosts of each location:
NIC: Linda Nygård & Hippi Hovi
VASA: Malin Vesterback
KRISTINESTAD: Helena Patoranta

Daniel Löf from Bodenbox presented their journey of establishing themselves as a household name in grocery delivery.
