This spring, Kiuas Start was organized for the second time to help early-stage entrepreneurs turn their ideas into reality – and eventually into real companies.
The second Kiuas Start program really exceeded the expectations. The applicant number 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.

Fall program 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 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.
The deadline is on October 2. Read more here: kiuas.com/start
