André Noël Chaker – passionate about TWINKLE


Hi, my name is André Noël Chaker and I am an entrepreneur, I am a speaker and I am a writer.

I am passionate about Twinkle because I am passionate about diversity. Diversity is a great motor for growth, for innovation and for sales. You know, 40% of the world’s greatest companies from where I come from, from North America, 40% of the fortune 500 hundred were created by immigrants, or sons and daughters of immigrants. Today, 75% of the most wonderful greatest start-ups in United States has at least 1 % of a part of the management team that is from elsewhere. This is because diversity is a great motor for growth, a great motor for innovation and a great motor for sales.Finland has lost over the past 7 years, 75 billion euros in exports. We know for a fact that when you have diversity in workplace, when you have people international working for you, these companies do better then others with their exports. Finland lives for its exports. It has to succeed in the future in selling the great ideas, the great innovation, and the great services that we develop here, to the rest of the world. One key is diversity. One key is to start with Twinkle.
