It has been a while since I last blogged anything. Seems like the "doing" part is overwhelming the "writing" part, for now at least.
Honestly one of the reasons why I have become a less active blogger lately has to do with how rewarding and motivating writing a blog really is. Sadly I have noticed that people are far less active and give far less feedback than I would have hoped. This almost directly results in declining motivation and writing less, even tho I probably would have a little "something" to say about a few things still..
Anyways here's some upcoming things for the fall:
Next Monday, on the 21st of September I will be chatting at MTV3 morning TV show "Good Morning Finland" again. This time it's going to be about a medical-genetics startup I have been working on pretty much all summer. I will be there with Tuija Takala who is a specialist/scientist in ethics. We are discussing the possibilities of genetics, pharmacogenomics, personalized medicine and ethical implications thereof. The new startup is based on patented inventions on genetic information systems and processing; the end product is system which can optimize and recommend your diet, lifestyle implications, medication and therapies. Basically it gives you deeply personalized knowledge that allows you to live healthier longer life.
The next day, on Tuesday the 22nd I will be speaking at an event organized by Sefe, the Finnish Association of Business School Graduates, or more specifically their entrepreneurship "wing".
At the turn of the month I'll be at MindTrek ( http://www.mindtrek.org/2009/ ) giving a brief talk before the startup company pitches.
On 7th of October I'll be speaking at an entrepreneurship conference in Tallin, Estonia. The attendants are mainly students and aspiring entrepreneurs. Good stuff, sounds like a great event full of positive energy.
On November the 12th I'll be in Lahti, speaking at an event by MBE about social media, recommendations, and the like. This would be all in finnish.
Later in November I'll be speaking in the invite-only CEO-only event FICTA in Levi. About social media and it's implications to strategy.
Besides speaking what else is there?
We'll I'm seriously considering co-writing a finnish-language book on entrepreneurship and startups. This would be the kind of "spill it all out and give advice" -typeof guide book, where I would try to highlight everything I find important and meaningful in startup building and success. Digital version of the book is a must, as probably is an International version as well. There seems to be none of these kind of books around in finnish language. Please do tell me if this is a bad idea, so I can save myself the trouble ;)
I am also working on 3 different startups, finding out about if we get them really going, funded, cast with great teams etc. Interesting times certainly!
