CYF Digital Services is a Finnish startup that provides a mobile service to help people feel at home.
Established in May 2016, the company grew from a volunteer project, called Choose Your Future, aimed at enhancing integration of asylum seekers in Finland by utilizing digital innovation and social media.
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.
We offer an easy, fast and efficient mobile service to own your new home city and to make new friends! The service is beneficial for many - cities, educational institutions and companies.
With our service, your organization can share info and events, build stronger communities and reach people effectively!
