ADC Snapshots 💎 Interviewing the first batch participants ➡️

🌸 Please introduce your team and your business idea:
The team consist of Sami Hakkarainen, head of narrative; Marko Tandefelt, head of user experience design and Tomi Raijo, head of animation.

We are building an interactive animation-documentary media piece called FUTURIMAGES. The idea is to invite people around a physical and digital space where they are asked to put forward solutions to wicked systemic problems (eco-social-economic catastrophes) to build a vision of a livable future in 2050. This is done through a digital gamified interface we are currently working on. It combines interactive elements with docu-animations where real-life solutions are presented in a metamodern manner by showing both the ups and the downs of each solution.

🌸 What made you apply to the ADC pre-incubator?
I (Sami) had an idea that seemed to fit with what was pitched in the program introduction. I was originally working on a digital platform for creatives to engage with their audiences in a more participatory manner that would include crowdfunding and investment potential and also influence over how art is produced. Initially I realized this idea was already under process in other places, so my main focus shifted from building a platform from jump-starting content.

🌸 Name three things that have been the most valuable to you in the program:
Getting: 1) Valuable insight from the pre-launch process of a start-up. This kind of information seems to be kind of hidden knowledge nobody is talking about publicly. If all the knowledge about start-ups is delivered from a marketing perspective, the information becomes corrupted. 2) Perspective from other members about my ideas and contextualizing it to a larger whole. 3) A structure of meet-ups that keeps the project going in some direction. When you're living this kind of precariat life of working on multiple projects at once, the projects that are only led by self-motivation can sometimes be stuck in an eternal loop of procrastination if there is no external structure that asks you to show up and proceed.

ADC Snapshots 💎 Interviewing the first batch participants ➡️ Meet Flor and Lili!

🌸 Please introduce yourself/your team in a few short sentences:
Moikka! Yes, that is the name we have given to our project. That is the first word one learns as soon as arriving in Finland. We are, me and my teammate, both from Venezuela with an educational background in communications and journalism. One day, while talking, we realized there were very few spaces showcasing the country in our language, that is Spanish, so an idea was born.

🌸 Explain your business idea/project in a few short sentences:
Our project started on social media, we created an Instagram account called: moikkafinlandia, this is a multiplatform channel that educates trough entertainment. Our goal is to be the first contact that Spanish speakers have with Finland. We have been growing our community and, in the process, more ideas have appeared, and we are working on landing them.

🌸 What made you apply to the Aalto Digital Creatives pre-incubator program?
It is funny, we think we had a bit of luck. We had launched the page already, when one day the ad appeared in our feed. By that time, we had had some conversations about how little we knew of this entrepreneurship world. So, as soon as we saw it, we had to apply in order to start from 0 to build new connections and gain some understanding of the situation. And of course, Aalto’s name might have helped to that decision.

🌸 Name three things that have been the most valuable to you in the program:
The chance of connecting with amazing people, the accurate insight and advice from professionals and the support we have gotten from the team towards all the ideas not only me, but all groups presented.

🌸 How are you going to proceed with your business idea after the program?
We are gonna continue growing our community and seek for other opinions and education while developing the other projects. There are still many pain points and opportunities to be identified and we certainly want to approach them properly.
