Havuja#!@&%&!
program

Havuja#!@%&! is a business accelerator program consisting of stages on three different levels (Bootcamp idea accelerator program, startup Accelerator program, Leap startup program) and Havuja#!@%&! Campfire Community as well as Hackathon.

Havuja#!@%&! boosts new business ideas and their maturing into future success stories. Novel ideas, sparring, methods and networks for commercialisation of innovations, development of business activities and internationalisation are some of the program’s core elements. Fearlessness to give it a go, willingness to do things together and an open innovative mind are the common themes on each program stage. Below you can find more details about each program.

The name Havuja#@%&! originates from the region’s strong connection to nature. Growth venture events and activities in North Savo, such as Tahko Ski Lift Pitch and Startup Hiihtokoulu, have already attached this merit to their names. We decided to join the line and add Havuja#@%&! Accelerator program and Business Center North Savo to the startup ecosystem, the natural place for us to be.
