Vaasa region in Finland, is home to many successful companies, which are driving the future of cleantech industries. It is a cradle to startups that grow into multinational corporation such as Vacon (now part of Danfoss) and The Switch. It is a unique place where entrepreneurships and innovation are embedded in the genes of the people. It is the place that gave birth to EnergySpin Accelerator program.

The high concentration of energy growth companies with closely connected experts and collaborative environment gave the sparks for this program. EnergySpin started as an innovative platform to share ideas and trends and developed into a multi corporate accelerator program, supporting startups to grow, connecting them to corporates and helping them to challenge the status quo of the industry.

In EnergySpin we believe in the power of innovative ideas, dedicated and hardworking entrepreneurs who are passionate to make the difference. That is why we spend hours on fully understanding the core businesses of the selected startups, and what lies behind them, to really support them and not just give false hopes and useless tools. We help them to tweak their business models, prepare for meetings with corporates & investors and support them in finding the way to enter and position themselves on the market.
