Valkea was founded by Fortum, a leading clean-energy company with some of the lowest carbon exposure levels in the European power generation industry.
Our extensive network and experience spans decades, countries and services, meaning we're able to show entrepreneurs where realistic impact can be made.
Crucially, Valkea offers startups and their founders what they need most: Time. Time to focus on the actual running of their businesses, while Valkea can provide the services below.
Together, we're building solutions for a cleaner future, solving challenges faced by consumers, businesses and our planet.
Our team, advisors and Fortum network have world-leading expertise when it comes to sustainable energy ecosystems.
We've scaled businesses to both national and regional levels, and understand markets well. Through our partners, clients and service providers, we're able to offer clean-energy startups invaluable advice on legal, financial and HR matters.
Our first co-working space is located at Maria 01 in Helsinki, Finland — the largest startup campus in the Nordics. Home to many of the most promising startups and the largest VCs in the region, Valkea's headquarters are at the centre of innovation.
Our space has been designed not only for co-working, but for exceptional times when we have to physically distance ourselves or connect digitally.
Being an entrepreneur can involve challenging and lonely work at times — that's why it's so important to connect with a community of likeminded individuals.
Being part of Valkea means not only being part of our own community of startups, but also the Maria 01 community and other more global startup communities.
Well planned and managed funding is key to growth of startups. There are a number of ways we offer financial support.
Our entrepreneurs are given access to valuable startup pilot opportunities where they can test ideas. We also facilitate collaborations with industrial partners.
Valkea offers access to incubation, acceleration programs and courses.
