Urban3 is an oasis for urban developers

With Urban3, the goal is to build a comprehensive and bustling platform for showcasing the future of the Finnish built environment. We look to honor the innovation ecosystems breaking silos between traditional industries, the solutions improving our built environment, and the innovators creating our shared and sustainable urban future. We welcome everyone from various backgrounds to take part in our diverse activities and join in on creating our shared story. If you’d like to work with us, join the community, arrange an event or showcase you solutions, please click the button to contact us.

”We opened Urban3 on the eve of the covid-19 situation. Still, more than 250 hybrid events have already been held in the space and interest in our open ecosystem is growing as new players visit us. We welcome everyone interested in innovation in the built environment to visit the space – there are endless opportunities for cooperation.” – Teemu Lehtinen, CEO, KIRAHub
