A'Pelago Initiative 2023
A'Pelago Initiative is a series of business camps combining a think tank with action
It is a meeting place for engagement, dialogue, exchange of ideas and unexpected connections that contribute to the development of the archipelago. It brings together business leaders, digital nomads, researchers, investors and other influencers as well as local entrepreneurs around vital questions of the future of the archipelago.
The purpose of the events is to generate new business ideas and concepts with a local anchorage. These events will be a perfect opportunity for attendees to engage in vital matters relevant for the archipelago and to make valuable connections with like-minded individuals. The events will take place in the Turku Archipelago.
Our first event, A'Pelago Initiative 2023, is a two-day business camp taking place in the heart of the Archipelago at the Archipelago Center in Korpoström.
