Event Details

This is an event designed to highlight the next generation of startups in Tampere and connect founders with investors & industry experts.

Back and bolder than before, the Startup Tampere Showcase 2024 is gearing up to be the unmissable pitstop for every tech aficionado, founder, investor, and disruptor in the game.
In the backdrop of the pulsating Tampere region, last year’s standout event celebrated startups galore in areas like Smart City Development, ICT, and Deep Tech. This year? Expect the stakes, and the pitches, to be even higher.

Picture this: 100 startups, from seasoned scale-ups to the freshest bootstraps, converging in a hustle of innovation, and 25 of them getting the spotlight moment on stage they’ve dreamt of. Between high-octane pitches, there’s a treasure trove of happenings – speed-dating sessions that might birth your next big collab, panel discussions that challenge the status quo, and ad hoc meetings where serendipity meets strategy. And because it’s not all business, wind down at the Afterwork, where clinks of drinks meet rooftop views, melodies, and memories.

For those who’ve got their finger on the pulse of Europe’s startup scene, thinking of Tampere might just be synonymous with raw innovation, and this event? It’s where the magic gets tangible. Whether you’re a startup out to shake things up, an investor ready to bet on the next big thing, or simply a tech enthusiast hungry for what’s next, Tampere 2024 is your playground. Buckle up and mark the date; this is where the Nordics shine!

Lighting the Nordics with Resilient Innovation!
Dive into Tampere’s rich legacy, a place where the Nordics’ first lightbulb flickered to life and ignited a relentless pursuit for the new and uncharted. In a world that shifts by the minute, Tampere’s startup mindset shines bright, adapting with dynamism and a kind of resilience deeply etched into its DNA. In this city, we don’t just innovate; we’re driven by dreams, fueled by decisions, and powered into action. As Tampere transitions from traditional manufacturing to smart tech, we’re casting the net wider than ever, encompassing everything from cell phone tech to niche signal processing.

At Startup Tampere Showcase 2024, expect a unique fusion where past successes pave the way for future breakthroughs. Here, startups aren’t just presented; they’re celebrated. With the city’s vast infrastructure, support, and community behind every idea, startups find not just a platform but a catalyst for growth. We’re not just about providing testbeds for rapid prototyping; we’re about marrying the brightest minds with the most audacious ideas. With 30,000 higher education students in Tampere, vitality and innovation are in the air. And it’s not just about the numbers; it’s about the connections. In Tampere, you’re two phone calls away from anyone – a compact strength we wield with pride.
Whether you’re a tech titan, a visionary startup, a corporate leader scouting for fresh innovations, or an international investor aiming to tap into the Finnish magic, Tampere’s got your back. Join us for an unparalleled blend of tech showcases, expert panels, networking sessions, and the renowned Afterwork.
