Space Pitch 2023

12.10.2023 17:30


The unique SPACE PITCH event of the capital of space brings together growth-minded individuals in the entrepreneurship capital of Seinäjoki's Rytmikorjaamo in October. In addition to great parties, there will be useful networks for startups, new ideas, and brilliant pitching. Last year this event was fully booked, so be quick and register!


What can you expect at this epic event? Inspirational stage programs, networking, interesting growth companies and their pitches, as well as experiences in both food and accompanying activities.

Companies from both the region and all over Finland will gather at the event to pitch their ideas to interested "lions" and network with like-minded individuals.

In the "Lion's Den" of South Ostrobothnia, experienced lions will be listening closely to the selected pitches of the pitching competition. The lions will comment on business ideas and shed light on development areas even if they are not explicitly stated. This will also help participants think about the direction of their own work.

Feedback from previous years' Space Pitch events includes:

"Thank you to INTO and the inspiring pitchers for the inspiring pitch event. Flying high allows you to see further. See you in the Milky Way."

"Nicely organized event with a happy and encouraging atmosphere. Nice to network now live!"

"The organization was really great! A great opportunity for companies to showcase their work and for participants to learn from others' speeches."

"I expected the event to be well organized, but the overall experience exceeded my expectations. You could see that everything was carefully thought out: the environment, sounds, lights, host, and service as a whole."

Come and be inspired & surprised! The event will take place at Rytmikorjaamo Club.
