Choose Your Future is a Finnish startup born global

VISION

Established in May 2016, Choose Your Future grew from a volunteer project aimed at enhancing integration of asylum seekers in Finland by utilizing digital innovation and social media.

Our mission is to ease social integration when people, for example students and asylum seekers, move to a new city. Our vision is a united society where people find each other's similarities while respecting everyone's differences.

STORY

Choose Your Future started out as a student-run program, founded in 2015 at the Turku School of Economics, with the goal of promoting immigrant and refugee integration into Finnish society.

We aimed to do so by providing refugees and immigrants with information and advice, giving them the tools they will need on a day to day basis when making Finland their new home and choosing the life they want to pursue.

Choose Your Future won the Facebook Global Digital Challenge organized by Facebook and US State Department in Washington in February 2016 from amongst 45 international contestants.

Winning 1st place and great feedback inspired us to establish a company to continue our work for more efficient social integration.
