Tahko Ski Lift Pitch, 12th-13th of April 2023

Event for startups, investors and all business-minded people!

A one of a kind startup event that pairs entrepreneurs with investors in a ski lift by the stunning slopes of the Tahko Ski Resort.

Eastern Finland’s the most unique business and networking event offers an energising experience for all business minded people! The pitch event itself (organized since 2017) was so successful that it transformed what was originally a small group of people working within the Kuopio Region Chamber of Commerce into what is now the larger SLP Growth Community which consists of business professionals, investors, academic institutions, and civic leaders from Finland and beyond. Growth Community’s main event Tahko Ski Lift Pitch is held yearly in Tahko Ski Resort.

Ticket includes:

  • Entrance for both days
  • Networking dinner
  • Lunch 1x/day
  • Ski ticket








Tahko Ski Lift Pitch holds a program for students: Student Track -idea contest final! You can participate in the contest by coming to Business Center North Savo’s pre-sparring events or to Ski Academies, from where the best student pitchers will be sent to Tahko and they get to pitch for a live audience and judges for a chance of winning Student Track 2023 -tittle and a 500 euro gift card! Students can also come to be an audience and cheer friends at Student Track, so you do not have to compete yourself to participate.

We offer Tahko Ski Lift Pitch’s first event day free of charge to our partnering learning institutions along with free bus shuttles from Kuopio to Tahko and back. Partnering learning institutions are: Ylä-Savo Vocational College, Savo Vocational college, Savonia University of Applied Sciences and University of Eastern Finland.
