Tech Me Together HackWeek 10–13 May 2022


Do you have a budding business idea and a mate or team that could make it a reality? Do you still ponder if your idea is worth implementing, or would you like to get one more round of validation before taking the next step? Do you wish to try out our idea in practice with the help of experienced professionals?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, sign up for Tech Me Together HackWeek on 10 – 13 May 2022.

The Tech Me Together HackWeek is a four-day virtual hackathon arranged by Northbound Startups, Sofokus, Turku Science Park Ltd and Tehnopol and funded by the EU Regional Development Fund and Interreg Central Baltic.

During the intensive HackWeek, your team gets to develop and finetune your business idea with the help of Sofokus’ digital business and startup consultants. At the end of the week, your team will have a roadmap with concrete steps for turning your idea into reality, and you’ll get to present your idea to real investors. Furthermore, you’ll have a great chance to network with other growth-minded people from Finland, Sweden and Estonia.

It doesn’t matter whether you have already sketched your concept further or have nothing but a bright idea in your mind – teams of all kinds are warmly welcome, but we are especially looking for ideas that improve communication,  cooperation, teamwork and learning.

Sign up for Tech Me Together HackWeek before 5 May 2022, and we’ll get back to you with further instructions. Be quick, as there is room for only a limited amount of teams! The event is completely free of charge.
