WHO WE ARE
Helsinki Think Company is the entrepreneurship society of the University of Helsinki. Most importantly, we are a vibrant community of changemakers open for anyone to join.
WHAT WE DO
Our work is crystallized in our projects. Check them out!
To put it simply, we help people bring their academic skills into action. Often times this means entrepreneurship, but our mission runs deeper than that. We aim to help future change makers recognize their skills and passions and create something unique in the world, improving their lives and others’. We provide them with all the right tools: free coworking spaces, workshops, bootcamps, accelerator programs and tons of other events, mentoring and a community of like-minded individuals.
WHO WE SERVE
Our community, A.K.A. The Think Family, consists of all kinds of people: students from all fields, graduates, researchers, freelancers, startups, artists, activists… What matters more than your title is what you want to do.
DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF?
You want to do something meaningful with your unique skills, yet it feels hard to find the right path to fulfill this mission. Our activities and community will bring you inspiration and chances to meet like-minded people as well as opportunities to test your skills in action. Let’s take the first step!
You already have a vision that you’re realizing but could use a little push along the way. With us, you can develop your own projects and concepts. We’ll provide you and your team with business knowledge, new methods for working and important contacts to mentors and stakeholders. Let’s make your idea happen!
You’ve already accomplished stuff. Now it’s time to scale up the impact of your action. We’ll guide you to the various service providers within the University of Helsinki and Enterprise Helsinki for professional consultation, tools and networks for figuring out issues from funding to legal matters. Let’s go big, not home!
Ok, bear with us. We’re called Helsinki Think Company, but we don’t do business in the traditional sense. We are a co-working space and a community. Our passion is to bring people together and make stuff happen here and now.
No. To create something multidisciplinary and truly new, you can’t draw too many lines. People are amazing no matter where they study or work.
Using the space for co-working and organizing event’s doesn’t cost you money. However, we expect you to bring something to the community in return. Say hi to people you don’t know, smile, be considerate. Don’t be afraid to draw on walls (the drawable ones), or move a table to a better place. Wash your own coffee cup and organize the space to it’s original condition after using it. Most importantly, bring in your enthusiasm and energy.
Some of our people are employees, some are volunteers. Our employees are the one taking care of the daily routines of the coworking spaces. They also carry the biggest responsibility for our programs, but we are nothing without our community’s efforts.
Helsinki Think Company is funded by the University of Helsinki and the city of Helsinki.
Physical presence is required. So just come inside, a member of the host-team is always there and ready to talk. Come to our events, get to know people and join the association.
No you don’t. However, we will not throw you out if you have one. For coming in and getting involved, curiosity is all you really need.
