• Tallinn Creative Meetup

    Tallinn Creative Meetup on June 5-8, 2018 is a global incubator networking event, where during a three-day program we develop a framework for future collaboration between creative incubators and accelerators. Our end goal is to build a working informal network platform for entrepreneur and mentor exchange, which will not function as a temporary “project”, but as a continuous value-adding tool for all participating organizations.
