The Teknologia 23 event's competition, targeted at startup companies, is now open. The aim of the competition is to highlight significant new solutions in the field of technology, and the winner will receive a €10,000 prize, donated by the Finnish Fair Foundation. The Teknologia 23 fair will be held at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre from 7 to 9 November 2023.
Being held for the third time, the startup competition seeks the most promising technology companies of today with the potential for growth.
The prize can be awarded for a significant, creative and innovative technology solution, such as a new commercial product, method, or application.
