new york

NYC is our hotbed of creative thinking and design talent.

Oulu

Oulu, Finland, is our home of technology and world class development.

We blend them together through deep collaboration and cross-pollination to avoid building walls around capabilities and to bond these 2 worlds together that often exist separately. As a result, we’ve cracked the code of creating a truly end-to-end team that can embed themselves in any organization, or augment an existing team, to help kick start progress fast.

Our disciplines

We are made up of highly experienced individuals from a variety of backgrounds that, combined, make for a deeply knowledgable and highly energetic mix that gets results.

Business & Leadership

Our business is driven from a history in leadership from the world of auto racing. Experience in this deeply team oriented profession has allowed Finlabs to infuse ideas and thinking that help our different disciplines move together, as one.

How we work

We build our teams, that include our clients, outside of confusing organizational structures to limit the influence of legacy knowledge, territorial behaviors, and group-think. We call them Shadow Teams.

Every engagement is crafted differently, but our experience has shown us that projects generally follow a simple repeat process to achieve success and ongoing sustained growth.
