Startup Sauna accelerator helps promising early-stage startups to get ready for taking the next step, be it entering their market or raising a seed round of funding. Our coaches are some of the most talented serial entrepreneurs, investors and other industry experts.
Currently 126 companies have graduated from Startup Sauna since 2010, raising more than USD 37 million in funding. We’ve done over 90 coaching events in Nordics, Eastern Europe and Russia, which has given our coaches a good understanding what an early-stage startup from our region needs.
Startup Sauna is open for startups from all fields of business as long as the company has the potential to scale globally and a superb team that can deliver.
The Startup Sauna accelerator program focuses heavily on the business side of startups, which is achieved through customized 1on1 coaching. The startups participating in the program will meet relevant serial entrepreneur and investor coaches during 1on1 coaching sessions (one of the photos depicts such a session), where they get to drill down on the issues facing their business. The program takes place Oct 20th – Nov 19th in our co-working space (one photo showing the space) in Helsinki and is fairly intensive in nature.
All of the startups participating in the program gain access to Slush (http://www.slush.org
), one of the largest startup and investor conferences of Europe, and we take the best 6-8 startups of each batch to Silicon Valley to meet VCs, investors, media and customers.
