Successful first months at Terkko Health Hub

Terkko Health Hub, the collaborative working environment for health and life sciences at Meilahti campus, has had a flying start after opening its doors to the public in October.

During the first two months of Terkko, its office spaces, flexidesks, meeting rooms, and different collaborative spaces have been in active use. In addition to the in-house organizations, eight startups have already rented offices from Terkko, and five more companies will be joining the hub by January 2018.

“I’m very excited to see that so many innovative and brave startups have already joined the community”, says Kiira Grönroos, one of the coordinators at Terkko Health Hub.

According to Grönroos, many of the companies are eager to collaborate with Helsinki University Hospital HUS, the University of Helsinki, or some other member of the health and life science ecosystem.

“Terkko Health Hub is all about enabling and supporting this kind of collaboration between people and organizations from different backgrounds”, she states with a smile.

Terkko Health Hub brings together companies, universities, hospitals, libraries, business accelerators and individuals who share a passion for health and life sciences. Terkko provides variable working spaces, events venues, as well as entrepreneur services, and is open Mon–Fri from 8am to 8pm.

Health Capital Helsinki is an official partner of Terkko Health Hub. You’ll find our office on the 1st floor of the Terkko building at Haartmaninkatu 4.
