Friday 13.4. TahkoSLP

When the magic happens!

Tahko Ski Lift Pitch is an unique, international startup-event in Eastern Finland. The heart of the event is Ski Lift Pitch Battle -competition, where 20 chosen startups present their business ideas to investors at the Tahko Ski Resort ski lift. However, it is not just a competition. It's a community, where entrepreneurs and investors can meet each other in a relaxed and exclusive atmosphere at Tahko slopes and Panorama Bar.

A crazy idea of a Savonian elevator pitch evolved in the hands of the regional chamber of commerce and the most talented minds of the Savo area into a pitching competition in a ski lift. This linguistically diverse nation won’t settle for an ordinary lift ride – we want to reach the top of the Tahko mountain with none other than an investor. And there is no escaping the pitch!
