Startup Demo Day is the final milestone of the New Factory Startup Program, where startups are pitching their business ideas to investors, mentors, and industry experts. This time, Startup Demo Day is a part of NFO17. It’s also a graduation event for the startups of the current batch and a great networking opportunity for everyone involved.


Demola journey has began in 2008. It grew, it scaled, and here we are – this spring Demola Tampere is breaking the 500-project barrier! It’s a number to celebrate, isn’t it?! Join the big celebration as a part of New Factory Open 2017 with Demola Best Pitching, Panel Discussion, Fascinating Showroom and launch of Annual Report 2016 and Innovation Guide.


For the 3rd sequential year, we are publishing the Demola Tampere Annual Report. Once again, it contains a brief description of all the projects done in Demola Tampere during the passed year. I strongly recommend you to read it and dive into the interesting year 2016 of Demola Tampere! What’s more, this time we publish Demola Innovation Guide as part of the booklet, explaining the most important parts of carrying through an innovation project!
