Ohoy *shipsters!

Year 2020 has kicked off different than we all expected, but we won’t be shipwrecked.

*ship Startup Festival will be happening this year on August. The initial plan was to organize the event on 13th & 14th of August, in our familiar location - Vellamo, Kotka. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has of course changed the plans for us as well. Our motivated crew is currently working on coming up with the best solution to execute *ship this year. Most likely, there will be some changes to the traditional concept.

We will inform the *ship community as soon as we have the final idea on how *ship 2020 will be carried out.

Thank you for your understanding and stay safe!
