Currently 109 companies have graduated from Startup Sauna program since 2010 raising more than USD 36 million in funding. We’ve done over 70 coaching events in Northern Europe and Russia which have given our coaches a good understanding what an early-stage startup from our region needs.
Organized every spring and fall, the program is divided into three parts:
- Startup Sauna Local Events: One-day coaching sessions organized in the leading startup cities in Northern Europe and Russia
- Startup Sauna Program: A 5-week intensive accelerator program for selected ~20 teams. The teams are expected to live and work full time at Startup Sauna during the program. The best startups from each batch are showcased in November at Slush conference, one of Europe’s leading startup and tech events.
- Startup Sauna Silicon Valley: Some of the most promising teams will be taken to Silicon Valley to meet investors, customers, competitors and media.
