Success of tomorrow is made today.

This is why JCI Finland wants to recognize companies, who are successfully making things differently. Tuottava Idea (Productive Idea) is JCI Finland’s oldest innovation competition. Turun Nuorkauppakamari ry (JCI Turku) started the tradition in 1977 by arranging the competition as a regional quest to find the most innovative and productive business idea. The very next year Tuottava Idea was a national competition, as Kauppalehti partnered with the project.

In 2016, the stakes were higher than ever. Tuottava Idea partnered up with NASDAQ. On top of everything else, this meant the winners would get an insane amount or recognition by being shown on the NASDAQ display at Times Square, New York City.

Companies who have won the competition in the past include Ponsse Oyj, Polar Electro, Genelec and SHIFT 2016 partner Turku Energia, for their innovative heat pump system in the Kakola waste water cleaning facility!
