Summer of Startups was a 9-week-long program that enabled up to 15 teams to get started with their own businesses. Each team got a funding of up to 5000€ depending on its size so they could fully focus on the program without worrying about the rent. Teams got a free place to work, professional tailored coaching and the support of the startup community.

The program started on the 6th of June 2016 and ended on the 5th of August at the Demo Day. The program took place in Startup Sauna at Betonimiehenkuja 3 D, Espoo, Finland.
