We bring to life unconnected things.

Amazing things John's made
Taganize is the result of a Startup Sauna hackathon which focused on creating mobile apps Finnish women would use. I created the 'Parent Finder' which was greeted with immediate praise. Please see:

In early 2012, I established a Focus group comprised of students from Aalto University and we examined the potential for NFC and QR codes. We even built a working mock-up of what a potential service may look like. In turn, I failed on my first 3 attempts in building the Taganize cloud service. On my forth attempt, I succeeded. Learning from my mistakes and persistence paid off! Please see:

In between my failures the Aalto FabLab Open Days played a vital role. It was here that I would dedicate the next 3 years toward building prototypes Taganize would one day activate and support.

The following slide enables me to tell the story how Taganize has evolved over the years. In it you.
