Nestholma Startup Accelerator
Nestholma startup accelerator program is a free, intensive three-month program in Oulu, Finland promoted by BusinessOulu. This is the third Nestholma batch in Oulu, and it will run in Spring 2017 (20.3.-9.6.). During the program B2B and B2C startups will get a unique opportunity to refine their idea and product with many industry experts, pursue new business opportunities and grow their network. The aim is to make the startup fundable and ready for international opportunities.
The accelerator takes advantage of Nestholma’s Lean Startup-driven venture accelerator model that has been developed to help startups and large corporations to work together. During the program startups will develop their idea into a product that customers care about and a business opportunity that investors are interested in. Also the aim is help the startups to collaborate with large corporations in order to learn and find new business and partnership opportunities together.
