What is the Association?

The role of the association is to foster entrepreneurial mindset and create events, programs and other activities around current social and entrepreneurial trends for our community. We want to enable low threshold participation, especially at the grassroots level ​of the academic community.

Our activities are implemented in close cooperation with Think Company employees. The mission of the association board is to provide community members with opportunities and tools to learn, improve and implement their entrepreneurial and project management skills. Through Helsinki Think Community the members have a possibility to take part as a volunteers in our programs and events.

The entrepreneurial ecosystem and our community startups are at the heart of our operations. The board is responsible for cooperation between Finnish entrepreneurship societies as well as granting the yearly Think Fund to promising early-stage entrepreneurs.
