About us



Our vision is to be the most diverse and inclusive student led entrepreneurial community in Finland providing all round support, networks & projects with multidisciplinary approach.

The story of Tampere Entrepreneurship Society (Tampere ES) has its origin in 2009 by forming an association called Stream Tampere. On the First of March 2011 at 13:49:31 that initiative was officially registered. Since that moment, Stream Tampere ry has been operated in New Factory premises by entrepreneurial minded people. Later in 2014 – 2015 all that was reshaped into a student-led open community TAMPERE.ES. 


Since the very beginning our mission is to encourage students of Tampere Universities and  international talents for entrepreneurship by supporting them in launching projects as well as providing personal and professional development opportunities and connections.

Being at the very forefront of the startup ecosystem, TAMPERE.ES welcomes newcomers and offers a chance to match the diversity of people from all fields of studies and background into the coolest, innovative and multidisciplinary projects in the city.


You can join our recurring community building events such as Community Afterwork & Brunch during the year. We create the best possible atmosphere for fertile networking and introducing opportunities that lay within entrepreneurial society, so you can join those actions in the most easy way.


As well, our funnel always is under development and improvement via the biggest events such as “Startup World Cup Finland” and “Sauna Pitching”. With all that we aim to strengthen the Tampere startup ecosystem and make it a more attractive place to found a startup.

If you are a student in one of Tampere Universities and willing to develop yourself or your project to the next level, we are glad to welcome you.
