The Turku School of Economics and NYU Stern School of Business have been collaborating over the last 5 years on building VIBu, a virtual international business simulation. In 2015 we decided it was time to work together on addressing the economic challenges in Finland. We want to host a thinktank of discovery between business, academia and government to explore where and how to unleash hidden creative talent in Finland.
This thinktank will take place in Helsinki on June 9, 2016 where we hope to gather 100 thought leaders in deep discussion on a range of questions. Our objective is to gather and publish these ideas and share them here with a guide for how other communities large and small may do the same.
John Sexton, President emeritus of New York University and visionary for creating one of the first global universities will lead our thinktank in a day of innovative thinking activities lead by Prof. Aline Wolff from NYU.
