Before heading for the summer holidays, here is a message from our project manager Kaisa Ahonen:

“I have had the privilege to lead Urban Tech Helsinki for the past three years, and now it’s time to move forward. I want to thank all our startups, partners, and friends for the great collaboration and for all the fun we had together. I have learned so much about sustainable cities, innovative technologies, and supportive startup ecosystem in Helsinki and beyond. I will continue working for Aalto Startup Center so I am sure we will have a chance to catch up also in the future!”

Team Ari Seppänen and Labiba Abdul will continue supporting our startups until a new project manager is starting in the position. The 6th batch will start their journey in August so stay tuned for the announcement and be ready to get amazed by new startup stars!
