The number one spot in Tampere for entrepreneurial minded students 

We operate in Tampere Universities as a promoter of sustainable entrepreneurship and as a myth buster, for the students at Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. Through years 2012 to 2020 we operated as Y-kampus. HUBS saw the day of light in January 2021 after renewing our operations, including our name.

We offer free-choice studies that develop the skills and knowledge of students around the themes of innovation and entrepreneurship. We support students who are planning to become entrepreneurs or have already become entrepreneurs in our Sparring Clinic, through our mentor network and in our courses, that help to develop one’s own business idea and versatile skills that are needed as an entrepreneur. Our activities are open for every student in the Tampere Universities, regardless the field or year of study.  

We work closely with interesting partners: our students get to put their knowledge to the test and develop their skills in real-life challenges, given by diverse companies and organizations.
