Why did we start the Phoenix non-profit incubator? 

Phoenix, Finland’s first non-profit incubator, was born out of the experience of Startup Refugees. We are forever grateful to our network who came together, took action and made Startup Refugees the success story it is now. Our experience highlights how the power of companies, communities and individuals can be harnessed for concrete action.

Phoenix is our way to give back to the non-profit community. Read the full story here.
