This spring Hookle was selected to participate in Kiuas Accelerator, the leading accelerator program in the Nordics. This meant being one of the 17 most promising up-and-coming startups chosen amongst 123 applicants. The nine-week program culminated last Thursday 29th of August at Demo Day, where the startups had the chance to demo their product in Tennispalatsi, the biggest movie theater in Helsinki.
For Hookle Kiuas Accelerator was a journey, that offered a unique possibility to participate in coaching, mentoring with industry professionals and networking with other early-stage startups and founders. ”For us, the most valuable lessons at the Kiuas program considered growth and product-market fit. We gained valuable know-how in these areas, which are exactly what matters most to our company at the moment. We also got important contacts, that we can now utilize in the future when we grow and need support from more experienced guys,” says Tero Seppälä, CEO of Hookle.
