We believe that academic knowledge can make the world a better place. A university degree gives you a great understanding of the challenges we are facing, but what about the solutions? That’s where Helsinki Think Company comes to the picture. We connect all students at the University of Helsinki who want to take the step from understanding to action.
Whether you want to revolutionise the food industry or fight discrimination in your community, our goal is to share you the tools needed for defining a problem - and finding a solution to it. And maybe even start your own company in the process! But even if not, the entrepreneurial mindset is something you will find useful on whatever path in life you end up pursuing.
Consisting of students, researchers, and entrepreneurs of all kinds, Helsinki Think Company transforms academic knowledge into concrete action. This is achieved by providing entrepreneurial education, tools and support for those who want to make an impact on their surroundings.
Think Pod is a new video podcast initiative by the Helsinki Think Company association. The podcast examines new thoughts, conversations on how ideas get transformed into actions, and actions into real world solutions. We interview academics, entrepreneurs and social change makers on impact entrepreneurship, community building, learning to learn in the age of AI, science and wellness.
