Services for start-up companies

Start-up community SparkUp

The new kind of business development environment named SparkUp speeds up the start-up activities in the Turku Science Park area and promotes the commercialisation of the innovations created there. It focuses on generating new business ideas and start-up companies, and supporting their operating prerequisites, growth and internationalisation.

Turku Science Park Ltd’s services for start-up companies form a part of the services offered by the new community. A versatile range of services will help with questions related to product development, strategy, starting of marketing and sales, and strengthening of human resources. Now Turku Science Park Ltd’s networks can also be accessed through SparkUp!

The decision on SparkUp was made when the City of Turku, Turku Science Park Ltd, University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Turku Region Development Centre, Business service centre Potkuri, and Turku Technology Properties Group agreed on concentrating new kind of business development activities based on innovation, communality and enthusiastic attitude into a tight start-up community in the Turku Science Park area. Other partners in the co-operation are the student-driven start-up community BoostTurku ry and Creve, an incubator for the creative sector run by HUMAK University of Applied Sciences.
