To promote the best Finnish educational practices in the developing world.
Over the last 2 decades, the Finnish education system has been praised for being the best in the world. We at VentureVillage have taken it upon ourselves to propagate outstanding Finnish educational practices in the Developing world. To achieve this vision, we have designed courses based on Finnish Pedagogy for Indian students. We have also looked to identify potential avenues for deepening the partnership between Finland and India. VentureVillage is happy to announce that we have entered into a partnership with the Center for Continuing Education (HY Plus) of the University of Helsinki. HY Plus has decades of experience in offering educational courses as well as development services, both for individuals as well as organisations, in Finland and abroad. We look forward to working as their partner as they expand their services to India. As our first joint venture, VentureVillage facilitated a meeting between delegates from the University of Helsinki with the senior bureaucracy in Kerala, India. On 17th October, 2019, a delegation from Finland, which included Mr. Matti Pettay (Coordinator for Indian Cooperation – University of Helsinki) and Ms. Pirjo Silfversten (Director, Transnational Education, University of Helsinki, visited Kerala and met with decision makers here. Mr. Pettay is one of the advisors of VentureVillage Oy, the parent company of the Indian branch. These meetings were the first steps in what we hope will be a productive engagement between the University of Helsinki and the Government of Kerala.
