Have you ever thought telling about your fresh business idea to someone or are you interested in hearing about them? Well you’re in luck as Aaltoes is launching a new pitching evening in January. Startup Sauna will transform into an arena for innovative new ideas on 31st of January with four judges and an explosive crowd evaluating your demo.

Workshop day (30.1)

To help our startups prepare for the main event, Will Martin will host a workshop the day before (Monday 30.1) to give enough time for polishing pitches and working on stage presence. Each startup will receive expert guidance on how to make the most of their three-minute time to shine (e.g. overcoming stage fright, handling the judg…es and networking after the competition).

Our honorable panel of judges includes, for example, the seasoned Mike Bradshaw from Solu Machines and investor Jakob Storå from Superhero Capital. They will determine who wins private consulting from the judges to boost their company further and learn a thing or two.

Food, drinks and networking will also be served after the competition. We only have room for eight startups to present their idea and receive valuable feedback for their product so apply quickly and prepare your three-minute pitch!

Service design competition organized by Aaltoes attracted young talents to Urban Mill

On 23rd of April, Urban Mill welcomed 30 innovative and young talents in a rapid prototyping workshop and competition organized by Aalto Entrepreneurship Society Aaltoes and sponsored by Fjord.


Participant of this workshop-competition were international and multidisciplinary people who wanted to spend a day, learning how to get real with sketches and ideas and building them in a short time.

Fjord as a service design agency walked participants through the process, from Discovery to Describe and Design. Participants worked on the real service design case of Aurinkomatkat and did their very best to redesign their service in a short time.

At the end of the day, the stakeholder got surprised by the quality of works achieved in a short time and evaluated all the works and selected the best one.
