A Grid is the stable for future unicorns located right in the heart of Aalto University Campus.
A Grid is a startup community and one of Northern Europe’s largest centers for growth companies. We are home to nearly 150 startups, accelerators, such as the European Space Agency and Aalto Startup Center, as well as partners and established companies, like City of Espoo’s business services. We also serve as a vibrant space for entrepreneurial expertise, services and events. 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 infrastructure.
A Grid is a unique combination of entrepreneurial spirit, creative community, innovative mindset, awesome facilities and university campus lifestyle bringing people together in different ways. Our headquarters is located in the A Grid building (Otakaari 5) in Otaniemi, Espoo, 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 the adjoining Otakaari 7 building for starter offices and locations across the campus for thematic coworking spaces accessible via our coworking membership.
