Tahko Ski Lift Pitch, Tahko Ski Resort

Eastern Finland’s most unique business and networking event offers an energising experience for all business-minded people! The pitch event itself (organized since 2017) was so successful that it transformed what was originally a small group of people working within the Kuopio Region Chamber of Commerce into what is now the larger SLP Growth Community which consists of business professionals, investors, academic institutions, and civic leaders from Finland and beyond. Growth Community’s main event Tahko Ski Lift Pitch is held yearly at Tahko Ski Resort.

Time: 3 – 4 April 2024
Place: Tahko Ski Resort
