WHO is staycurious.org?
Heikki does have a last name but let us keep it personal.
His dad was born in Finland, his mom in England, and he was made in Texas. By age 12, he had lived in New York, Florida, West Germany, and Ohio. This diverse, cultural exposure incited his curiosity which never seems to stay idle. His professional career as a project manager started in San Diego, California.
He likes to travel and enjoy the curious 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.
In 2012, he founded staycurious.org.
WHAT is staycurious.org?
Think of staycurious.org as a whirlpool.
A whirlpool has a definite form but no water stays put.
The Mission: Promote education and understanding of self and society with quality, disruptive, and engaging content that is pulled from creative sources and shared within our community.
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

WHY a Benefit Corporation?
A Benefit Corporation differs from a traditional corporation in that it focuses on the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit.
PURPOSE | Benefit corporations commit to creating public benefit and sustainable value in addition to generating profit. This sustainability is an integral part of their value proposition.
ACCOUNTABILITY | Benefit corporations are committed to considering the company’s impact on society and the environment in order to create long-term sustainable value for all stakeholders.
TRANSPARENCY | In most regions, benefit corporations are required to report, in most states annually and using a third party standard, to show their progress towards achieving social and environmental impact to their shareholders and in most cases the wider public.
