Great pitches are a learning platform for the future migrapreneurs and great and inspiration for the spectators. Based on the inspiration and networking during the event we’ll have a boom of migrant entrepreneurs in a near future.

Modest Fashion Show

The event also included the first Helsinki Modest Fashion show.
Modest Fashion is refers to a fashion trend in women of wearing less skin-revealing clothes, specially in a way that satisfies their spiritual and stylistic requirements for reasons of faith, religion or personal preference. Demand for Modest fashion products is constantly rising in both Finland and the world, and at least this event did not reduce demand. Follow the show here.

Excellent keynotes

As a summary we are thrilled for the event and with all the participants well and thank all the great volunteers who made this event possible.

We also want to thank our partners Elo, Ukko and NewCo Helsinki, for supporting this event.
