Maria 01 is where startups, investors, ecosystem builders, and corporates work together investing in brave ideas, and benefit from the community’s unexpected opportunities.

Launching the Maria 01 Investor Collective: an Initiative for the Community by the Community

We love co-locating our investors to walk amongst our founders

Our campus hosts the vast majority of all Finnish venture capital funds. The investors focus on various scopes, from deep-tech to gaming, investing in stages from pre-seed up to A and B rounds. Furthermore, we work closely with some of the leading foreign venture capital funds and investor networks in Europe. Check out our Investor Network on the campus here
