Entrepreneurship

We have several cooperation opportunities for those interested in research-based entrepreneurship.

The University of Jyväskylä is one of the most active universities in Finland in the commercialisation of research results. This is shown in the more than 20 positive Research to Business (TUTLI) funding decisions made by Business Finland (formerly Tekes). The collective funding value of these projects is over €10 million. The goal of this funding is to promote the development of research-based business. The typical result of a project is a spin-out formed by the key contributors of the project team. The University of Jyväskylä is looking for commercialisation experts interested in entrepreneurship to get involved in the planning and execution phase of the projects.

We use the Boardio Advisors and Board members platform in our search for commercialisation experts. See our recruiting advertisements at Boardio.

We also collect commercialisation and business experts in our own Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) register. We are looking for individuals interested in mentoring, sparring or joining a team building a research-based business. Please note that we are not collecting service providers for this register. Registration entails no obligation – how you want to collaborate with us is up to you. Enrol in the EIR-register here (Webropol inquiry in Finnish).

We encourage researchers and students at the University to explore the Entrepreneurship Portal. There you can find extensive information about the services provided in the Jyväskylä region related to entrepreneurship, strengthening professional expertise and finding new opportunities to exploit your own competences. The English-language version of the website is currently under construction.
