Maria 01 Impact Report 2023

The Maria 01 Impact Report is an annual publication and a comprehensive report on Maria 01’s activities throughout the preceding years. The report gives the reader a look into the Maria 01 Community, sharing insights from our startups, partners, and investors and the impact we as a community have on the society and wider startup ecosystem.

Our mission is to provide the best environment and community for startups to grow, and we believe the next world-changing startups are being built in Helsinki. That is why this year’s report includes data and findings both from last year and from the beginning of Maria 01’s history. We have looked into the impact our startups have had on the world around us, including data on everything from raised funding and generated revenue to created jobs and contributing to a more international working environment.
