Corporate Start-Up Co-creation (Cup) is a project initiated by the city of Helsinki, and funded by European Regional Development Fund.

The Cup project is aimed at knowledge intensive, innovative, small and medium size growth companies in the Uusimaa region. The project will develop a new community of companies and create new models of startup-corporate collaboration.

The Cup project brings together local and international key players. The project further develops accelerator and other services for growth companies by bringing physically together public and private players into a new space and community at Maria 01. The community will enable new multisector cooperation possibilities that can produce unforeseen innovations.
