WHAT is staycurious.org?

What is staycurious.org is what staycurious.org is.

Think of staycurious.org as a whirlpool.

A whirlpool has a definite form but no water stays put. You also are a whirlpool and your education is the water.

The Mission: Foster self-inquiry through personalized learning with quality, disruptive, and engaging content that is pulled from creative sources and published here for free.

Learning is a lifelong process that is simultaneously biological and cultural. Each of us learn within complex developmental, cognitive, physical, social, and cultural systems; changing the brain throughout your lifespan. At the same time, the brain develops in ways that impact learning and are in turn shaped by the learner’s context and cultural influences.

Traditional schooling is something that is given to you.

Personalized education is something you seek. #staycurious

WHO is staycurious.org?

An accomplished Project Manager trying to reignite one simple philosophy: learn or die.

My parents named me Heikki. Yes, I do have a last name but let’s keep it personal.

I’m a simple kind of guy creating a simple kind of life. I prefer to keep it low-key and enjoy the quiet things in life, quality time with family and friends, the occasional round of golf, and putting as much focus and energy into the mantra:

Learn something everyday.

Curiosity & Creativity are two of my favorite qualities in life and in work.

These two principles are the core of staycurious.org.

WHEN did staycurious.org start?

This creative-project turned entrepreneurial adventure was created in early 2013.

The Articles of Incorporation were filed with the Secretary of State of the State of California on September 3, 2013 and officially incorporated as a Benefit Corporation on September 18, 2013.

WHAT is a Benefit Corporation?

A Benefit Corporation differs from a traditional corporation in that it focuses on the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit.

Benefit Corporations have a purpose to create a material positive impact on society and the environment.

Benefit Corporations redefine fiduciary duty to require consideration of non-financial interests when making decisions.

Benefit Corporations report on their overall social and environmental performance using recognized third party standards.
