Business Center Pohjois-Savon Havuja Bootcamp -ohjelman mainoskuva, jossa lukee For developing early business ideas, in english, 2 credits.


Havuja Bootcamp is the 1st stage of the Havuja business accelerator programme by Business Center North Savo.

Bootcamp is meant for anyone who has an initial business idea and would like to work on it. Participants get to develop their business idea in four intensive 2,5h workshops with the help of experts from Business Center North Savo. You don’t have to have a clear business idea ready. In the final session all teams get to present their business idea to the Bootcamp jury.

You can participate by yourself or as a team. You get two (2) credits from participating to your elective studies.

Havuja Bootcamp is actualized in English, and therefore, it is open to all exchange and international degree students in our educational institutions. Finnish students are naturally welcome as well.

Bootcamp sessions are held online via Zoom.

  • Tools for developing your initial idea into a feasible business
  • Skills for pitching your business idea
  • Contacts that can help you with your business idea further
  • 2 credits for your elective studies
