Up to one hundred companies born at Aalto University every year

Aalto presents at Slush its entrepreneurship activities and companies that have sprung from the university.

The sold-out start-up event Slush starts tomorrow, 11 November. Aalto University participates in the two-day event as a partner and presents its diverse activities promoting entrepreneurship.

Every year, 70–100 new companies spring from the innovation ecosystem that has been created in Otaniemi. At the Aalto University stand at Slush it is possible to familiarise oneself with the stories of over 40 companies and with numerous actors at the university, who do bold long-term work to support entrepreneurship.

'Supporting entrepreneurship is one of the key tasks of Aalto University, and setting up a company of their own has already become an attractive career choice for our students,' says Vice President Tuija Pulkkinen.

Several companies that originate from Aalto University take part in Slush, for example ICEYE, which develops a micro-satellite service, and Beddit, whose sleep monitor was the first Finnish technology product to make it to the international Apple Store.
