Ready to take the next step, but don’t know which way to go?

Kiuas exists to encourage people to start building their own ventures and to support early-stage startups in their journey from idea to first revenue.

Our aim is to create a motivating environment and a community that encourages you to move forward and build not only your company but your own expertise as well.

Kiuas is an incubator program located in Startup Sauna in the Aalto University campus in Espoo, Finland. Kiuas teams get 24/7 access to the working space at Startup Sauna and 365 help from the Aaltoes team, the Kiuas coach pool and our partners.

Kiuas is supported by events like Kiuas Bootcamp, where very early-stage teams can get idea validation from experts, and Nordic Roadshow, where Nordic startups and investors are brought together for one evening in a Nordic city.

Our summer program, Kiuas Accelerator (previously known as Summer of Startups) is a 10-week sprint to reach your goal, whether that’s getting users or external investment.

Kiuas is entirely student-run, with a team full of entrepreneurial-minded students from Aaltoes, the biggest entrepreneurship society in Europe. The co-working space of Startup Sauna is open for everyone, so don’t hesitate to pay us a visit if you are interested about Kiuas and our programs!
