It can be tough figuring out every single thing on your own. Luckily, here is a community to help you get started!

Tribe Fellowship is a community membership for those who want to be actively involved with the Tampere Startup Community. You can become a Fellow in one of two ways – by joining Startup Catalyst or Community Circle. Startup Catalyst is for individuals/teams at the start of their startup/entrepreneurial dreams, and Community Circle is for individuals seeking to be closer to the community and develop their skills in the meantime.
