Why us and Finland?

All competitive nations generate a substantial number of innovations, competitive start-ups and new enterprises, and they are very strong in technological competencies. We believe the future competitiveness of a nation consists of three elements:
– practically-oriented higher education, which generates graduates who are immediately employable and who make their organisations thrive
– innovation oriented ecosystems with strong capabilities and competencies for change
– strong technology-oriented competencies

Finland has a history of continuous change and learning. This has driven our country to develop strong knowledge-based assets and consequently to be at the top of many global competitiveness rankings. Our strong hands-on professional higher education, combined with technological competences and innovation capabilities has helped produce internationally known innovative brands such as Kone, F-Secure, Nokia, Angry Birds and Supercell.

The history of Finland helps Finnish education experts to understand various educational and developmental needs. We are good at transferring knowledge, and English as the first foreign language puts us at the same level as our clients who don’t have English as their first language. We have done this in Finland, and we can help you do it in your own country. Let’s start together, building a solid foundation for your future skills.
