Integrify is one of the finalists of the “Vuosisadan rakentajat” challenge prize!

We are excited to reveal that we are among the 15 finalists of the Vuosisadan rakentajat (Builders of the Century) challenge prize. The challenge prize is seeking for ideas that improve young people’s wellbeing and enable them to participate in society more fully both now and in the future.

The open challenge prize got a huge amount of applications — exactly 326. So obviously Integrify’s CEO Daniel Rahman is beyond excited that our idea was ranked so high:

Of course we knew that our idea is exceptional but we couldn’t be certain that we would be chosen. Being in the final confirms the fact that Integrify has potential to become a nation-wide program — or even a Europe-wide one.

The chosen teams will develop their ideas with professionals during the spring and summer.

Our concept is quite polished because we have already tested the idea through the pilot program. But there is always room for improvement.

Daniel describes team Integrify’s expectations.

The winner of the challenge prize will be announced on 1 October 2017. Then we will find out if Finland is going to have a trainee program that can change thousands of refugees and asylum seekers lives for better.
