For startups

How OP Lab works

Traditionally, corporations have approached early-stage startups through hackathons and accelerators. We take a different spin on things.

  • We do not accelerate, we work together in actual projects
  • We are not a potential partner: we are an actual partner with a common goal to solve a specific problem
  • We do not make capital investments, the reward comes from actual work and results
  • Our goal is to add value to our customers with new business models and emerging technologies

Joining Our OP Lab Startup Program

Our startup partnership program is all about practical work with startups. We’re not an accelerator – each project is serious work that we hope will directly benefit you, us and our current and future customers.

Are you facing some of these problems?

  • Are you fresh out of an accelerator and don’t know where to go next?
  • Do you have ideas, concepts, even MVPs, but no customers?
  • Do you feel like corporate partners are not taking you seriously? It takes forever to move forward?
  • Do you lack an established, forward-thinking partner to provide business insights?

Consider your problems solved. Come to Finland and build the future together with us!

OP Lab is one of the most exciting places to work right now, as finance industry is in transformation. We at OP see the change as an opportunity provide better services.
