Building on 15 years of experience back and forth between Colombia and the Nordics, including 5 years living in Colombia and 8 years based in Finland, the CEO of EdVisto, Joni AlWindi, dedicated to executing on modern education opportunities in Latin America, announces the launch of the company’s consultancy services for Effective Education Implementation in Latin America.
“If you’ve ever been curious about Latin America, my strong belief is that now is the time and that Colombia is the country to start in”, AlWindi affirms.
The company’s recent developments have indicated a strong need for broader collaboration to enable effective progress in the education industry in general and in Latin America in particular. After a couple of years of collaborating with other Finnish entities in the region, AlWindi sees great potential with this wider strategic approach:
“In a digital world, there’s a lot of confusion about what technologies to introduce in the classroom, even whether or not to use any technology at all some times, whether or not the Internet is good or bad, whether or not to concentrate the learning to a classroom and even as to what the teacher’s and school’s role in modern learning really are. Modern pedagogical models indicate strongly that dramatic change is needed, if not complete transformation throughout the learning process. To enable this, we can not work individually as small private education companies. My firm belief is that we need to join forces, also with the giants of the industry, to build bridges between what does not work any longer and that which is proven to be needed.” Joni AlWindi, CEO of EdVisto
So far, EdVisto’s collaboration projects have targeted Colombia, Argentina and Uruguay. In September this year, the Finnish Government through Business Finland is sending a delegation of Finnish companies to Colombia and Mexico to continue exploring opportunities in Latin America. Regarding Colombia, this represents the first official follow-up after the inauguration of the Finnish Embassy in Bogota in 2017. Together with a former lawyer from the Colombian Education Ministry, Laura Tami, the company then started a video series about Finnish Education in Colombia.

- 2018: EdVisto Case Study in the Amazonas Department
This year, a third video is planned to highlight a selection of Finnish education companies dedicated to enter Colombia, and EdVisto is hereby calling interested entities to announce their interest directly to the CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AlWindi concludes with an invitation to Finnish companies interested in the Latin American region:
“The opportunities and counter parties in Latin America, now especially in Colombia, are eager to do business with Finnish people and entities, especially around education and now more than ever. If you’re interested in testing your concept or piloting your product in Colombia and Latin America, I’d be happy to look at a potential collaboration.” Joni AlWindi, CEO of EdVisto
