Keuda is our new collaboration partner

It gives us great pleasure to share the news of our collaboration with Keuda; they offer vocational education in Keski-Uusimaa. We're educating their team with our expertise on growth hacking, and how it can help Keuda students with a foreign background gain advantage in their job search. This is an incredibly valuable partnership. 🤝

How to build financially secure future for yourself, with Terhi Majasalmi (Vauras Nainen)

A week ago, we had a pleasure to host an event with Terhi Majasalmi from Vauras Nainen (where she's built a network of 80k+ women in Finland) and she took us on a journey through her experience in going against societal expectations as a woman on building a financially secure future for herself.

One of the main takeaways we got from Terhi:

Seek out extra income streams that match your skills and interests. We don't have to try every moneymaking venture, but instead center on what we love doing. Investing time and energy into what really interests us is key.

We gained so many valuable tips, so huge thanks to Terhi! 💜

Did you read our survey yet?

The international talent of Finland shared their thoughts on employment and life in Finland with us. We are doing our best to make Finland a more welcoming place for those from other countries, and we know many of you are doing that too. Let's keep discussing these important topics and listen to the voices that don't get heard enough.
