2017 will kick off a new phase in the Business Kitchen community as it takes over the campuses of University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Science! Business Kitchen has been building a co-creation and co-working culture in the city center of Oulu. Now the time has come to relocate our activities from center to campuses and focus on strengthening the culture of entrepreneurial experimentation in higher education context in order to strengthen the entrepreneurship community of the Oulu region.
Business Kitchen has been and will continue to be an important engine in the creation of an active entrepreneurship community. Business Kitchen was established in 2012 from the common goal of the universities and the city of Oulu to support the creation of new business, business growth, and internationalization when the economy hit a rough spot. Now we will continue working together in locations where we will be able to reach the most university students and researchers and get them involved in our activities. With this new phase Business Kitchen will create positive growth with an increasing number of students showing interest in entrepreneurship and research based ideas finding commercializers.
Business Kitchen will be located at Linnanmaa campus in Tellus Innovation Arena as well as at Kotkantie campus. Business Kitchen is first and foremost a community and a way of acting and thinking, that operates in several physical locations. Our spaces will be open for all in the future as well. We will continue our important task of lifting Oulu’s startup spirit and acting as the glue of the entrepreneurship community. Let’s keep moving forward together!
