Yesterday we did a call for Nordic and Baltic entrepreneurs to show off there startup pads, and we've already gotten hit by Helsinki-based guitar teaching startup Ovelin, maker of the guitar teaching apps, Wildchords and GuitarBots.
In the above picture, Thür says, "You can see our fun room featuring a drum kit, piano, Ramses the weird synthesizer, grass floor, Carsten the crocodile, a tribute to super mario on the wall, and furniture in Tetris block style, a flamingo hat and plenty of other weird things to be discovered."
We've been lucky at ArcticStartup to be able to visit a number of startup offices across the Nordics and Baltics, and it's always interesting to see what the vibe is in each one. From crazy analytics dashboards taking over a wall, to clean nordic design, to early 90's furniture, it's always interesting to check out.
Some go above and beyond the call of duty, for instance, ArcticStartup co-founder Antti Vilpponen moved up in the world to Upcloud, where those jerks have Sega Rally, a pool table, and a champagne bar in their office. Supercell's office was fun to check out as well, with big SUPERCELL letters down the hallway, and a ball pit. It's been a while since I've been in Tictail's, but it's what you would expect from trendy Swedish hackers.
