STORY BEHIND FYP

Finland Young Professionals network has been founded in spring 2011. The idea about the network came when IBM and KONE young network leaders had a common event and wanted to have wider network of young talents. Laura Lindsberg (née Savolainen), who was IBM network leader that day, contacted other network leaders she knew and organized a first meeting on 23.3.2011.

The meeting was held at Old YO-house and there were participants from IBM, KONE, Nordea, SOK, Nokia, Tieto and VTT networks. This group decided to form Finland Young Professionals network and have a first unofficial event in Kaivopuisto. The event was a picnic in the beginning of the summer and it was a great success. Over 200 interested networkers attended the event and this was a sign to continue to have more organized events for young professionals.

The next event was a cruise in autumn and this event has been organized every year. Since that time FYP has organized events for people willing to meet other talented people. First events were simply organized but as more networks joined FYP, there was a need for more structural way of working. Then FYP board was formed as well as FYP core group which includes leaders from company networks. FYP network continued to grow and in 2013 FYP organization was registered to PRH.
