Academics to Action

Helsinki Think Company aims to bring academics to action. We start from wicked problems and aim to fast solutions. Think Company nurtures people who cross boundaries between research, activism and entrepreneurship.


Helsinki Think Company is the entrepreneurship society of the University of Helsinki. We are not just for people who already have a business idea. It’s for the curious people who are eager to learn by doing and trying.  

Co-working Space

Helsinki Think Company is a place for coworking. The concept is pretty simple: bring in your own laptop, pick a seat and start working. The space has all the basic stuff needed at an office: wifi, coffee, whiteboards and flipcharts, markers, post-its and so on. You can use it solo or bring in a team.

3 Venues for Events

Helsinki Think Company has three different venues located in different campus areas: one in Center, one in Viikki, and one in Meilahti. They are all suitable for organizing workshops, keynotes and other events.

LUNGI Demo Day & After Work

July 7, 2016, 4:30pm - July 7, 2016, 7:00pm

LUNGI Summer Program is on! This week a happy crowd of 40 people started their journey to develop their business ideas further or create completely new ones. On Thursday 7th June at 16:30 you can hear them pitch! In the first two-week module of LUNGI – Academics into Action – new, multidisciplinary teams tackle science-based challenges given by researchers from the University of Helsinki. On Thursday you will hear what kind of business ideas could be developed around linguistics, environmental modelling, autoimmune diseases and fashion research. At the same time started our six-week Idea Accelerator for teams who have already worked on their business idea for a while. These seven teams have the opportunity to pitch in every Demo Day, so come and see their progress! We start with the pitches and continue with after work sponsored by Laitilan Wirvoitusjuomatehdas. Join us at the first Demo Day in Vuorikatu 5 and bring your friends!
