Join the movement

Just mad – and proud of it!

“You must be crazy, it takes at least two years to build something like this. And to do it with volunteers in a less than a year, without existing funding – what are you thinking of?”

Dementors are lurking: trying to press you down, kill initiatives, smash any new ideas, demotivate people who make and change things. Know what: get lost!

The Twinkle movement is rising: there’s a bright bunch of international people, who feel that there has been enough of wailing on this and that, so they put their act together and created a new concept, a platform for business life to discover the value of international competence and connections for growth. The Twinkle movement has this year produced a magnificent Twinkle 2015 -event, filling up Tampere Hall with 2 000 people: talents and businesses together reflecting companies’ challenges, talents utilizing their international competence and networks,  co-creating a brighter future together.

Yes, some 100 persons working crazy to build Twinkle 2015 are just that: crazy enough to jump into the deep end, because we do believe that bright businesses are made of bright people – and we have to work together in a new way to give a boost for growth, innovations and internationalization.

Don’t wait – come to Twinkle 2015 event in Tampere on 7-8 December 2015. We’re onto something big here, join the movement!
