Lahti Venture Program vol. 7 starts in October 2023

Lahti Venture Program is a two-month program in which multidisciplinary student teams develop solutions for business challenges presented by companies operating in the Lahti region.

Over the course of the program, the students receive sparring from local company representatives and entrepreneurship experts. The program familiarizes students with different aspects of business operations: forming a business idea, charting customer needs and commercializing ideas. This is a great opportunity to create contacts and build networks with top companies in the region, develop business know-how and get tools for future working life.

LVP culminates in the Best Business Concept competition where teams present their work to other participants and judges. Each member of the winning team will be awarded a monetary prize. In addition, the students may acquire traineeships or jobs at the companies.

The program is worth 5 ECTS and it is carried out in English. It is designed for students from LAB University of Applied Sciences, LUT University and University of Helsinki, but it’s open for all university students.

Lahti Venture Program is organized in co-operation between the University of Helsinki, LUT University, LAB University of Applied Sciences, Lahti Region Development LADEC Ltd, and Lahti University Campus.
