A Grid is a startup community and one of Europe’s largest centers for growth companies. As part of the Aalto University campus we work as a gateway to the university’s international network of resources, talented students and cutting-edge research and resources. We also serve as a vibrant space for entrepreneurial expertise, services and events. A Grid houses all kinds of startups, accelerators, such as the European Space Agency and Aalto Startup Center, as well as partners and established companies, like Fortum.
Our headquarters is located in the A Grid building in Otakaari 5, with most of our private office spaces, open working areas, meeting spots and event venues. However, the community is growing and we are expanding to locations across the campus for thematic coworking venues accessible via the hot seat membership.
