Peer group sessions focus on developing your entrepreneurial identity, networking and other soft skills, and to give support when taking the first steps in the path of becoming an entrepreneur. In both types of group sessions you will co-create ideas and solutions for your business together with other participants and share experiences. You may find your future business partner or collaborator! 

Both small group coaching and peer group sessions are organised 1-2 times a month on Fridays when enough people have signed-up. You can join once or as many times as you find useful.

In our  e-learning platform you can watch videos, read articles and digital guide books, download templates for making financial calculations, a business plan or for various other purposes, and study these topics in your own phase and time as much as you like.


You can choose to participate in all of the services or you can pick up only those that are interesting and useful for you. In the first meeting we will make a personal plan together for you to get forward as an entrepreneur or by employing yourself in another way.
