Lutes on wheels to St. Petersburg

Last weekend Lutes went to St. Petersburg! It was not only a toursit excursion, but an exciting trip, which combined entrepreneurship focus and great time spent together full of networking and fun! We got a great entrepreneurial minded crowd of over 30 people to join us!

Our great crowd!

Right after arriving to the Northern capital of Russia, we started off in Suomi-talo (House of Finland), which is “headquarters” for Finnish business in Russia. In Suomi-talo we had a series of presentations by Suomi-talo representatives, Wirma Lappeenranta, Helsinki Center and LUT. The representatives were telling us, how it is to run the operations in Russia, the constraints and opportunities for entrepreneurship there.

After a quick launch we moved on with the schedule and paid a visit to business incubator “Ingria”. After a short introduction about the incubator activities, we had an amazing opportunity to hear the pitches by several startups, such as ADDREALITY, Take5.mobi, Piligrim XXI and DomaLife.
