HELSEED workshops

Becoming an entrepreneur is not a clear step-by-step process to many of us – especially if you have not gotten any prior education in the field of business. In addition to this, entrepreneurship can often be seen as a path with a “restricted access” sign hanging over it; paved only for the brilliant commercial minds who have the magical touch of turning any idea into a viable money making machine. Let us tell you, this couldn’t be further from the truth!

To break down barriers to entrepreneurship, we proudly present to you: HELSEED workshop series. Delivered with a logical progression, these workshops contain all the things you need to consider when setting up shop. You can pick and choose which workshops fit your needs the best, or you can attend the whole series.

These workshops are organised in collaboration with the University of Helsinki, as a part of the wider HELSEED program. Therefore, these workshops are also designed to support and groom teams on their HELSEED journey.

How are the workshops related to the HELSEED program?

HELSEED program is a startup entrepreneurship program for students aiming to encourage them to develop their ideas towards startup companies. Possibility of early stage funding is offered for the most promising startups.

Workshops serve two goals in the HELSEED program:
1. For the teams attending the HELSEED program we provide support along the journey. This includes for example help in writing the business plan.
2. The second goal is to encourage entrepreneurship in the student community by providing information.

HELSEED workshops are open to everyone interested. You don’t have to be a student to attend. For requirements to attend other parts of the HELSEED program, see this page.

I want to participate in the HELSEED program, do I have to attend the workshops?

Workshops are a voluntary part of the HELSEED program. You can participate in all the other parts of the HELSEED program without attending the HELSEED workshops.
