The city is compact and everything is close by, which leads to an intertwined community – if you know somebody, you have access to everybody!

There are many different incubators and accelerators for support, mentoring, networking, and strong cooperation between the university, Tartu City Government, and entrepreneurs.

The city has an ever-growing sTARTUp culture with one of the highest numbers of startup unicorns per capita. By the way, Tartu is the only city in the world that fits perfectly into the word sTARTUp! In cooperation with the city, the biggest international business festival in the Baltics, sTARTUp Day, takes place annually.
