You are invited to the Startup Gala 2023!

Dear member of the Finnish Startup Community,

Airbnb, Tamagotchi, avocado peelers, ear lights. The best innovations (and companies) of our time have been built during the more uncertain times.

During this uncertain time, it is only fitting that our theme for the year will be innovations across time – and sense.

We cordially invite you to join your fellow innovators at the Startup Gala 2023, on April 14th, 2023 at 5 PM.

Do note, that we've reserved two tickets per member company.

All gala participants will receive a Startup Gala 101 information package to their emails after RSVP'ing, including specific details on the venue and possible bus transportations. We kindly ask you to RSVP by March 26th.

The sign-up is closed and the cent is full.
Don't hesitate to reach out to the organizing team at – we'll gladly answer to any of your questions!

The dress code for the gala is black tie. Read more below.

What's a Startup Gala?

The Startup Gala is an annual evening for the founders of our community companies. During the evening our community members get the chance to throw their laptops away for a night, and meet other like-minded folks.

What's the theme of the year?

Innovations across time and sense. Think both quantum computing and a butter stick coming together.

What to wear?

We go by "Riisu pois jo arkipaita", as the legendary Finnish singer Vicky Rosti sang in the 80's.

The dress code for the gala is black tie.

The black tie dress code for men means a tuxedo or dinner jacket with tuxedo pants. It also includes a dark suit. Black tie dress code for women means knee-length or full-length evening dresses.

Feel free to surprise us with a personal party-line detail of your choice.
