Become the innovator of today and arrange your local Innofrugal event


Frugal Innovation is a concept that challenges businesses to disregard the limitations in financial, material or institutional resources and to turn these constraints into innovative ideas and practical solutions.

In Finland we have been organizing the frugal conference since 2014 and local events have also been held at The Cambridge Judge Business School & Stuttgart with Fraunhofer.

A local event joins the public and private sector as well as civil society organisations to co-create frugal innovations and create impact in the ecosystem. A frugal innovation conference is a one- or two day event in which you can listen to interesting presentations, network,  participate in workshops and in the pitch contest. You can also organise smaller events (less than 100 participants) for different target groups i.e. youth, businesses, students etc.

We have several years of experience in organising events and are happy to provide help in organising your local event. It can be a full conference, a university, company youth or senior event – the kind of event your community will benefit from.
