Levelup Startup Accelerator

We help you to accelerate the development of your startup

Meet us at GDC 2019 - Game Developers Conference in San Francisco

Come say hello to the Levelup Startup Accelerator at GDC in March, 2019. We'll be there with several game startups from Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Latvia at the Game Camps booth.

Our entrepreneurs listed in Nordic Business Forum Under 25

We are proud of two young entrepreneurs on the Nordic Business Report Under 25 listing of game-changing young entrepreneurs & innovators in Northern Europe. At number 8 - and the best Latvian entrepreneur - is our Spring batch 2017 alumni, 19 year old Elviss Straupenieks of Airboardco. At number 5 - and the best Finnish entrepreneur - is 24 year old Niklas Nukari of Autollecom from our town of Kotka.

Levelup Spring 2017 alumni chosen Finland's hottest startup by Startup100

Our alumni Pomenia has been listed by Startup100 Finland in May and October, 2018 as the hottest startup in Finland. We are truly amazed and congratulate Pomenia! Their main founder is a truly inspirational lady. And mother of six. From a very small town. If she can build entrepreneurial success, so can you! Join the Levelup Startup Accelerator family.

Who we are?

Levelup is a startup accelerator based in the Kotka Region of Finland. We bring together startups from all over the world to participate in a 15-week program that empowers entrepreneurs to develop game-changing opportunities in Finland – home to the globally renowned Slush conference and a sharing startup community attracting global investment.

Kotka, our seaside community is rooted on tradition and hard work. Restless like jazz we refuse to stay put. There’s something different about Kotka – that’s why, for instance, Google decided to put its data center in the neighborhood.

From one of the most vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystems in Europe, LevelUp welcomes you to apply for entry into our program. WE WANT YOU.

 

Are you up for the VERTICAL CHALLENGE?
