Academics to Action

Helsinki Think Company aims to bring academics to action. We create transformative action by combining real world problems, academic know-how and entrepreneurial action with an open multidisciplinary community. Check our idea accelerators and inspiring events!


Helsinki Think Company is the entrepreneurship society of the University of Helsinki. We nurture people who cross boundaries between research, activism and entrepreneurship. We are 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.
