Register to the Event

Register

As a result of recent growth of Oulu based IT companies, there is strong need for software experts, service and UX designers as well as for sales professionals. Although this is good news for employees, it has become a major bottleneck and headache for companies, and it can threat the growth of new business areas, such as financial tech, in the Oulu region. We should react now, before the problem gets critical. Therefore, we have invited business leaders and leaders of University and University of Applied Sciences to search for solutions to the challenge.

Let’s make Oulu great together!
