Our VISION is to build a virtual and a physical place where people can discover a connection to all things Finnish.

Our MISSION is to bring together existing and new Minnesota organizations and businesses that promote Finnish culture, business, education, and heritage through an engaging online presence.

Our GOAL is to create a physical space in the Twin Cities for hosting Finnish events and activities.
