Kiuas Accelerator (former Summer of Startups) is a 10-week accelerator program run by Aalto Entrepreneurship Society that involves 9 teams consisting of students and recent graduates with a validated idea and a working prototype. Kiuas Accelerator helps the teams in taking the first steps as entrepreneurs in a low-risk environment.

Between July 3rd and September 8th, Kiuas Accelerator provides the teams with coaching from the most experienced serial entrepreneurs in Finland and professionals from multiple business areas. In addition to coaching, the teams will get free office space and a grant of up to 4000€ to cover their living expenses and to allow full-time business development.

Kiuas Accelerator ends at Demo Day on September 8th. At Demo Day, teams will present their prototypes and scalable business plans, which they produced based on their business idea during the summer.
