We help people solve
big challenges together

Our vision is to become a global community of solvers. We measure our impact by the number and magnitude of solutions that we have helped to become reality.

Our story

Industryhack got started as the founders’ side project in the fall of 2014. The original mission was to help Finnish industrial companies become more innovative by working with startups and innovative digital agencies in a series of hackathons. After the first event with Konecranes in February 2015, the company was established.

Since then, we have become a company that develops open innovation platform and community, and offers a wide range of services to support our customers’ innovation activities.  In the beginning of 2018, we announced that we will merge with the venture building company Pivot5, to strengthen our team and to serve our customers from strategy to experimentation and growing new ventures.


We are based in Helsinki, Finland

Our office is located in Helsinki, Finland in Maria 01, a community house for ambitious tech startups. It is one of the biggest startup hubs in the Nordics, housing over 100 startups under one roof. Feel free to visit us and come feel the energy in the building.

We are also looking for innovation agency partners around the world, so feel free to contact us if you want to work with us.
