Y-Campus gathers entrepreneurship studies under the same roof

Y-Campus gathers entrepreneurship studies under the same roof

At TAMK Y-Campus we do not attend lectures but roll up our sleeves and get to work! Courageous new entrepreneurs and top-flight professionals with the right attitude for working life are born at Y-Campus.

You can find entrepreneurship studies at Y-Campus. The studies are open to all TAMK students. The groups are always multidisciplinary and thus the approaches are diverse, tells Y-Campus Coach Lauha Peltonen.

Y-Campus organises entrepreneurship events every month. At the events students can develop their own competence and network with students of other fields as well as with entrepreneurs. Inspiring entrepreneurship stories are heard and even famous guests seen, such as Elastinen, Arman Alizad, and Minna Parikka.

The Y-Campus coaches also help and encourage students with their personal business ideas.

- It is worth coming to the Y-Campus if you feel the itch for testing ideas and trying your wings in the real world already during your study time, Peltonen encourages.

Y-Campus organises trainings for teachers with focus on coaching teacherhood and provision of tools for coaching.

Y-Campus gives wings to ideas!
