About Startup Sauna:

Startup Sauna connects the most promising startups from Nordics, Eastern Europe, and Russia with experienced serial entrepreneurs, investors and other industry experts through an intensive 7-week program held in Helsinki, Finland. It focuses heavily on business development: from pitching to putting together an investor deck and from finding a scalable business model to understanding the target market and customers’ needs. Hands-on help in areas such as legal, marketing, branding and PR is also available.

Startup Sauna is non-profit; we take no equity, and the events and the program are free. The best teams of each batch are brought to Berlin & London after the accelerator program to get understanding of the market, i.e. to meet investors, customers, and partners. Once accepted to Startup Sauna, a company also gets access to Slush, the leading startup and investor conference in Europe.

Startup Sauna has 222 alumni companies who have raised in total over $200M in external funding.
