Invite everyone to all in one space.

Vitalii Ukrainian Future Business Incubator

“Before Howspace, collaboration was complicated because people and information were scattered across different tools. In Howspace, everything is in one place: participants can see each other’s profiles, ideas and companies, and it’s easy to connect and collaborate.”

Pilvi the Finnish Ministry of Finance

“People feel that Howspace improves their ability to be heard and seen more effectively than in the face-to-face meetings of the past, where often only the loudest voices were truly heard.”

Mika Basware

“With Howspace, I instantly recognized a tool we could use to create a link between our customers and end users and our design team. It would also enable us to interact with our customers, share ideas, and collect feedback.”

Natasja Nyenrode Business University

“When we moved from physical to online education, Howspace helped tremendously to transition and offer a true online learning experience. We didn’t just offer online courses, but an entire learning environment through Howspace. That really made it a valuable experience for our students.”

Nancy UN Women

“It was key for us to have such an easy, accessible, and flexible tool. We didn’t want something static but instead wanted something that can flow with us as we move through the process. Together with the Howspace team, we’re creating an accessible space, and we’re able to respond to last-minute needs.”

Elina Milestone

“With the Howspace platform, we got the opportunity to also involve line managers in the organization straight from the beginning. Using digital tools combined with service design methods allowed us to grasp the big picture fast.”
