Would you like to talk more about Sprint?

We negotiate new partnerships all year round. However, Sprint Innovation Festival partnerships will be locked during the spring of the event year, usually no later than May. The Sprint Innovation Festival is organized by HUBS, which operates in Tampere Universities (both TAMK and Tampere University), and we work closely with companies and other organisations in our various courses and events.
