Sattumahdollisuus – Serendipity in Finnish

Sattumahdollisuus – Serendipity in Finnish

It must have been one of those SATTUMAHDOLLISUUS moments that I was invited (maybe I invited myself) to be a part of the famous Boardman2020 Silicon Valley Experience 2015 trip. During the trip I diligently kept a diary and took both physical and mental notes curiously all the time.

I realized that my passion for business books also started to generate a ‘to-read’ business book list that would most likely bring many of the participants back to the Silicon Valley mindset we all experienced during that very intensive week. So giving back according to the sharing economy, here is the list. Note! This list is so ahead of its time that The Sharing Economy and Originals books will be out only in early 2016 🙂

Enjoy reading!
