Circular Economy Event for Startups and Growth Enterprises

Info, program & registration

Introduction

FRUSH is a combination of latest talks, dynamic workshops and of course pitching. The purpose of the event is to boost the development of growth and start-up enterprises as well as to create and promote new business opportunities around circular economy. Our Vision is to be the leading national circular economy event.

FRUSH brings together businesses and methods used in circular economy all around Finland. The event is aimed at everyone interested in the subject: growth seeking enterprises, start-ups, investors, cities, students of the field and research institutes.

FRUSH is a great opportunity to network, find funding and investment opportunities and learn about the latest trends in circular economy directly from the experts. The main promoters of the event are Häme University of Applied Sciences and Forssan Yrityskehitys Oy. The first FRUSH event was also funded by Regional Council of Häme, Town of Forssa and SEUTU-program.

FRUSH was organized for the first time as a pilot in 2017 in the spinning mill area of Forssa on the premises of Häme University. The event will take place in the same location this year on the 18th and 19th of September 2019.

Forssa

Forssa is situated in the southwest of central Finland, which is the most populated area of Finland, only one hour from Helsinki, Tampere and Turku.

The long history of Forssa began in 1847 when Swedish-born Axel Wilhelm Wahren founded a spinning mill by Loimijoki River. During industrialisation, the town grew and developed together with the mill. Beside the spinning mill, Wahren built apartments, a hospital, a library, a shop and a school. The textile industry was the largest employer until the late 1970s, and in the 1980s the construction industry became the largest sector.

FRUSH Event takes place in the historical old spinning mill area
