Our organization was founded during the heart of the Nordic summer, with our headquarters located in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.
Who Are We?
Our full name is “Tuulenkantajat Ry – The Wind Bearers Association (TWBA)”. The Finnish word “Tuulenkantajat” translates to “Carriers of the Wind” in English. It’s a compound word formed from “tuuli” (wind) and “kantajat” (carriers). We have embraced this word as an energy source to drive significant pursuits and create a positive influence.
Our association is established by three women who aim to drive passion towards arts, culture, science and technology networking and commercial transfer between North Europe and China, especially those projects led by women. Since 2020, our primary focus has been assisting traditional companies, particularly those led by women, in transitioning to Web 3.0.
What We Do?

PROJECT MANAGEMENT & EVENTS HOSTING
NETWORKING & BUSINESS CONSULTING
We drive cross-continental impact – we are the first and foremost platform that promotes both arts and technology acceleration networking and exchange.
“Recognising the need is the primary condition for design and technology.”
