New Factory, Finland

New Factory is a novel innovation environment that provides students, self-employed entrepreneurs, researchers and developers with an environment for open innovation, allowing them to process ideas into prototypes, pilot projects, products, services and social innovations, new business and new jobs.

Seeds of ideas can come from businesses, public organizations, students, researchers or local residents. Besides ideas, enterprises in the Tampere region supply the Factory with coaching and financing. In return, the New Factory offers enterprises new talent, business ideas and concepts.

The Factory’s operations are run by its four innovation platforms: Demola, Protomo, Suuntaamo and Accelerator
