Join our community of doers and let's build something great together.

Entrepreneurship is not about having a company, it's about solving problems and finding out what is possible.

At Lutes, we believe in building a strong community of doers. Doer is someone who is driven by the curiosity of finding out what is possible. Doer is someone who realizes that they are not living in a world of limitations, but in a world of possibilities. When a group of doers get together, great things happen. 

Together with other entrepreneurship societies and country level startup initiatives we aim to build a strong startup ecosystem in Finland.
