Haltu develops online services for internet and mobile
Haltu, a programming company from Tampere, has been an important partner in producing the TWINKLE 2015 event app. Entrepreneur Mikko Sävilahti wanted to take part in TWINKLE, because the organisers share the same enthusiasm and values as Haltu people. It was easy to join the movement. ”I can’t imagine where else it would be possible to join such a high-level and rich networking environment. In TWINKLE it is possible to find surprising contacts by just telling what you do – whether you are involved as a business or an individual”, he says.

”International markets are a huge opportunity for Finns. We have the right skills and a high work ethic, but networks and methods to become international are often missing. With the input of international talents we are better able to understand the markets elsewhere, target our products in the right way and take cultural differences and other local factors into consideration.”

Eashan Salhotra encourages the use of opportunities in multiculturalisam
One of the most active volunteers of the TWINKLE movement, Eashan Salhotra, TWINKLE’s social media coordinator, is from India and considers Finland his second home. He appreciates the Finns’ warm-heartedness, equality, honesty and industriousness. At the same time he encourages us to better utilise the opportunities brought by immigrants and multiculturalism.
”In order for Finland to maintain its position, it needs to embrace the power of internationalisation. Partnering with TWINKLE’s multicultural volunteers has taught me that problems can be solved in many innovative ways, and that people from different backgrounds can have a different concept of the same issue”, he points out.
TWINKLE-blog encourages conversation
The TWINKLE blog is a collection of current articles that deal with topics such as diversity, change, entrepreneurship, international skills, multiculturalism and international business. ”Twinkle’s speakers, like Emilia Lahti's and Will Cardwell's articles about sisu and pioneer immigrants are eye-opening and motivating. You can also find blog entries about the TWINKLE movement’s ideology written by TWINKLE volunteers, partners and international talents”, Eashan Salhotra says.
