Antti Ylimutka of Startup Sauna talks about supporting startups through an open source seed accelerator
Startup Sauna is the leading seed accelerator operating in Northern Europe, Baltics and Russia. Founded in 2010 and organized twice a year, we’re running our fifth batch now. Startup Sauna organizes one day Startup Sauna Warmup events all around our region with some exceptions (we went to Shanghai and are looking to pull of a Warmup in Singapore during Fall 2012). During these days our and local coaches will do some Sauna -style 1on1 coaching with teams and winners of these Warmups get a chance to get into the actual 7-week Startup Sauna program in Helsinki, Finland. During these 7 weeks we coach the teams in various topics ranging from basic pitching to finding and executing business models while giving exposure to other startups, hardcore techies, kick-ass coaches and investors-alike.
