Get excited for Nordic tech event Teknologia 19

Helsinki will host Nordic tech event Teknologia 19, showcasing the latest in the tech industry — including robotics, artificial intelligence, 5G technology and digitalisation projects.

With the theme ‘Human, Responsibility and Technology’, the event features a program of talks from several fields of technology, with the exhibition offering an opportunity to explore start-up companies in the sector.

To date, more than 400 companies from all over the world have registered for the event.

In cooperation with NewCo Helsinki, the fair will feature a themed start-up area to showcase the most interesting technology start-ups, incorporating sensor technology and signal processing, software robotics, sensor systems and industrial drone inspections.

In addition to the themed area, start-ups can also be explored at the Startup Competition. Applications for the competition will be accepted on the event’s website at www.teknologia19.fi/startup until 8 September. After the application period, a jury will choose 5–7 participants for a pitching competition organised at the event.

“I hope that as many start-up companies and entrepreneurs as possible will receive attention and feedback as a result of the competition and fair,” said FiBAN Managing Director Amel Gaily.

“The Teknologia fair is a great opportunity for start-ups to network with potential future customers and other partners. At best, the event can serve as a springboard forward and as a stimulus for product development,” Gaily said.

Gaily described Helsinki as one of the hottest start-up locations in the world, with good opportunities for entrepreneurs.

“There is a very diverse group of entrepreneurs here who support and cheer each other on. Networking and getting help is easy,” Gaily said.

The jury, chaired by FiBAN Board Chairman Janne Jormalainen, will select the winner of the Startup Competition, who will be awarded a stipend of €10,000 donated by the Finnish Fair Foundation.

“The Startup Competition is one example of the mission of Messukeskus to promote Finnish business,” said Sales Team Manager Marcus Bergström.

“Participating in the start-up area is also free for the selected start-up companies, for example. It is great that we can be involved in supporting start-up companies in the technology sector on their journey to success,” he said.
