PLATFORM6 HOUSE RULES
Platform6 hosts Tampere startup ecosystem under the same roof, by community for the community.
We are a community of startups, investors, advisors, partners, ecosystem movers & shakers building a thriving and powerful platform for collaboration, growth and impact.
Our culture is built on inclusion, respect, transparency, accountability and ‘giving back’, and all of us as ambassadors of Platform6 share and foster this set of common values.
This document outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
Respect the space Keep things clean. We share a common space, and it’s up to everyone to keep it tidy and clean. If you move things around, then return them to their original location. Always tidy up after yourself. Also, for example, if you see an empty cup somewhere, bring it to the kitchen. Let’s lead by example!
Be mindful to others. Beware of noise levels when answering audio or video calls. Be regardful of usage of the space and shared resources like internet, meeting rooms, kitchen. For example, don’t book extra hours in meeting rooms nor occupy rooms as private office before/after booked meeting slots, or drink the last cup of coffee without making more for your colleagues.
Respect privacy A true collaborative work environment requires a culture of trust. We value transparency and trustworthiness at Platform6, but with transparency and openness comes great responsibility to not share confidential information or materials that you might see or overhear.
Beware of tailgating We all need to be aware of a secure workplace. Make sure that no one sneaks in behind you unless you know they are actually members or guests of another member. Remember all guests need to sign in at the entrance. Report any concerns immediately to the House Manager.
Sustainability It’s on all of us to decrease the Platform6 carbon footprint and its environmental impact. Paperless Office – Think before printing, choose to print less; Recycle – use the correct waste disposal recycling bins; Reduce energy consumption – Turning off the lights and switching off electronic equipment around the office during off-hours. Turn light off when rooms are not in use!
CODE OF CONDUCT
Mutual Respect. Help others. Always treat others with respect. We are a community that helps each other out. Pay-it-forward and supporting each other are at the core of our community values. While you are at it, empower your fellow community members too! Be proud to work in a space full of changemakers!
Diversity. Equal Opportunities for all. Our House is an organization fully committed to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) principles and ensuring those are fostered and put into best practices in all our organization’s work. We believe that embracing and promoting DEI as organization values is a way to intentionally make space for positive outcomes to flourish in our community and outside our walls.

We have a zero tolerance policy for racism, violence and any discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, country of origin, ancestry, pregnancy status, sex, gender identify or expression, sexual orientation, age, marital status, parental status, mental or physical disability.
