An old cotton factory filled with new stories.
New Factory is an innovation and business hub connecting business and people providing the space, tools and facilitation for collaboration. We catalyze ideas, boost passion and turn them into concrete action. How? With tested tools and processes – all open, agile, hands-on and community-based.
The home of New Factory is in the heart of historic cotton factory in downtown, Tampere. In this co-working space, New Factory produces ideas, prototypes, products, methods – and most of all, skills and attitude.
Our awarded operation models are Demola, a student and company co-innovation platform and Startup Program, a startup tool producing new business. We want to elevate ideas, passion and execution in a strong community.
The passion and action in New Factory.
We had an idea. To gather all the action in New Factory into one big showroom and invite lots of people there! In 2017, New Factory Open is organized for the 6th time, and this time we have a lot to celebrate and showcase. Demola 500 project, Startup Demo Day, Inspiration from alumni and traditional Showroom with startups and Demoal teams. Our participants are from the large community – teams, startups, partners and other actors from the field of business and innovation.
New Factory Open is a one-day event about what’s going on in the core of innovation and startup scene – and what’s next!
We are welcoming a great lineup of speakers all passionate about turning innovation talk into real life action. And most of all, New Factory Open is big showroom with the spotlight on the teams and startups working in New Factory – bringing them under the same roof with the ecosystem around it.
