Join fellow Crazytowners (and outside participants) to share and combine your understanding of key issues in technology, society, business and the world, and tackle together the BIG picture.

The aim is to generate new insights and real projects for each other.

Let’s jolt our mind. You will join in a group of 3-4 people, in realistic and goal oriented discussion but with a larger than usual perspective (say ”the galaxy” or ”human lifespan”) We’ll connect the dots in a very wide variety of issues in society & technology. Identify problems, opportunities and ideas from the emerging picture. There are no stupid questions or silly ideas. Insights often come from surprising directions.

Then let’s create a new project around your new idea. Let’s take real steps! You can start by cooperating with your discussion group after the event, or we can follow up and help you find other like minded people to join the project.

The event is open to outside participants, as well as to Crazytowners. The event language is English, but the small group discussions can be in Finnish too. The session is facilitated by Juho Rissanen, who has nearly 20 years of experience in the fields of technological innovation and international business. Over the years, he has collected multicultural and multidisciplinary insights (and languages) from many countries in Europe and Asia, plus the USA.

TIME: 22.3.2019, 09.00 – 10.00

PLACE: Crazy Town, Rautatienkatu 21 B (5th floor), Tampere



BrainStormCorner in a nutshell:

BrainStormCorner is a Tampere based, globally minded idea & project incubator that you can join.

“We live in a time of great ease.”

Never before were so many resources, technology and knowledge just floating around. You can access lots of it simply with keystrokes. The great ease is enabled by the internet, open access and open source thinking, and rising education levels. In a way that wasn’t possible before, you can catch all kinds of ingredients for free. With the right insight and the right timing, you can combine the ingredients into great innovations.

BrainStormCorner is about creating that insight.

“We live in a time of great complexity.”

We need to make more sense. Never before was the world’s multifaceted weirdness exposed and exacerbated in such a degree. A lot of this is caused by the same things that cause the great ease: free and easy flow of information and resources, the internet, the speed of technological evolution, virtual communities and their vulnerability to manipulation, etc. It is increasingly difficult to make sense of a quickly changing, fluid world.

BrainStormCorner is about that sensemaking.
