Kiuas Start programs have really exceeded the expectations: the applicant numbers have nearly reached the height of Kiuas Accelerator, and all chosen teams worked hard for the three weeks. And it looks like the teams have really taken our coaches’ advice into action: some teams have piloted their product and reached their first customers, while some teams have completely changed their idea.


Our team was able to develop our business & product during the 3 weeks more than we had done the preceding 3 months. - Kiuas Start '19 alumni

This year's Kiuas Start programs won’t be any different in terms of quality content. We have asked comments from previous participants to track the most useful and valuable concepts and themes: more 1-on-1 mentoring, hands-on workshops, and product sprints, which have been very useful for product development and getting a lot of stuff done at once.


Kiuas Start is perfect combination of peer pressure to get shit done and guidance to do that shit smartly. -Kiuas Start '19 alumni


Who can apply?


Kiuas Start is a program for teams who want to take their idea into a reality. This means you don’t yet need to have a formed company, super-detailed business model or a polished brand strategy either. The goal of Kiuas Start is to provide a chance to validate your idea & develop your product, and see if you can pull something out of it.

Kiuas Start takes only three weeks and the program is organized during the evenings and weekends. Why? We want to make the participation as easy as possible, also for those who have not yet jumped full-time on their startup.

Having a great idea is cool. But what we are really looking for are the most ambitious teams who are ready to jump to the deep end, go all-in for 3 weeks, and actually test if their idea is worth developing further.


We’ll offer you the tools, support, and a perfect program to take your idea to the next level. The rest is up to you.


Apply now for Kiuas Start Spring 2020!

The deadline is on February 20. Read more here: kiuas.com/start
