Overview

About us

Agile Commercialization is one of the five distinct ecosystems under Oulu Innovation Alliance. The other ecosystems are Industry 2026, ICT&Digitalization, OuluHealth and Northern City with Attractive opportunities. Each ecosystem function as a network of the best talent in their field, but  they also have cross-sectional cooperation, thus making the most out of the synergy that is formed.

The springboard to international growth for companies in Oulu region.

The Agile commercialization ecosystem strives at igniting and strengthening the entrepreneurial mind-set and entrepreneurship activities. It offers platforms for development (physical, digital: SRE, laboratories, testing facilities, campuses etc) as well as University-industry collaboration, especially engaging university students to innovation processes.

The ecosystem seeks after effective solutions to incubation and acceleration of scalable startups, and increasing competences in internationalization, networking and related business intelligence.

 

It also offers excellent possibilities for exchange of experiences in its local ecosystem for entrepreneurship and business development, including Business Kitchen, University Innovation Center, Tellus Arena etc.

Arctic co-operation is active (common R&D interests/projects, initiatives to tighten collaboration between Arctic innovation hubs) as well as participation in selected national networks (incubators, entrepreneurship education). Polar Bear Pitching is good example of acclaimed events organized by the ecosystem.
