Startup Sauna connects the most promising startups with experienced serial entrepreneurs, investors and other industry experts through an intensive 5-week accelerator program. We focus heavily on business development: from pitching to putting together an investor deck and from finding a scalable business model to understanding the target market and customers’ needs. Naturally, technical help is also available.

The best teams are brought to Silicon Valley after the accelerator program to get understanding from the US market, that is, to meet investors, media, customers and potential partners.

Once accepted to Startup Sauna, a company also gets access to Slush, the leading startup event in Europe. In 2014 Slush attracted more than 14.000 attendees, 1.500 startups, 150 VC funds and 300 media representatives.

Startup Sauna is a non-profit organization and its events and programs are free-of-charge.
