Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)

The development of entrepreneurial attitudes and entrepreneurial skills is high on the list of regional targets. In the future Kainuu will need more and more entrepreneurial personalities who are creative, independent and selfconfident solution seekers possessing good taste, good social skills and a capacity for independent thinking. According to research, 49% of students studying at Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (UAS) are interested in entrepreneurial activities. To promote students’ entrepreneurship skills Kajaani UAS cooperates with pre-incubator Intotalo (http://www.intotalo.com). Intotalo is a special training organisation which prepares local young people for starting businesses of their own. The development of entrepreneurship within the local authority of Kajaani is the responsibility of the Kajaani Technology Centre Oy/Business Development Department. The Business Incubator (Entrepreneurship Training Centre) Intotalo is responsible for supporting and organising training for recently established and new businesses. Intotalo has been operating in Kajaani since the beginning of 2003. During the autumn of 2005 Intotalo also started operating in Vuokatti within the vicinity of Snowpolis.
