“When I signed up, I didn't have any great expectations. It was my first time being involved in such an event and I had no experience with branding although I had read about it in books. So in signing up, I just came in for the experience, work with "strangers" as teammates and most importantly, have fun.” When asked about what he learned during the event, Andy did not hesitate to mention: “Teamwork, tolerance, creative thinking, pitching and thinking-out-of-the-box!”
Business Kitchen in the University of Oulu is the place where people gather together to create something new, to share ideas, or meet new people.

Taking part in Kickstart is certainly the easiest way to start the entrepreneurial journey. The only thing you need to participate is an idea. If not the feedback and networks, the prizes will boost your chances to start making your dreams come true!
