OP Lab Event Calendar for 2018

 

Polar Bear Pitching 6.-7.2. Oulu

Polar Bear Pitching is one of the biggest startup events in Northern Finland and is being held for the fourth time on the 6th and 7th of February in Oulu, Finland. What makes it stand out from other pitching events is its extreme nature – the pitches have to be delivered while standing waist deep in an ice hole. OP Lab is one of the sponsors of the event, and will have a strong presence throughout the event.

For further information, visit Polar Bear Pitching’s website.

Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where business enthusiasts, designers, developers and other entrepreneurial-minded people gather together to create their own startups from ground up – all the way until working prototypes and concrete products that are then showcased in the pitching finals held on Sunday evening.

Startup Weekend Tampere is being held for the first time in Tampere on 2.3.-4.3. and OP Lab is going to be strongly supporting the event. OP Lab’s mentors will be there to guide and assist the participants throughout the whole weekend.
