What’s it all about?

“Keep your head up!” - our football coaches shouted to us all the time. You have to see the game. The game is not in your feet, it’s there in the field.
The same rule applies to the era of digitization. You have to lift your head up to see it’s potential. Don’t just look at the technology, but benefits that it enables.
Keep your head up is an independent community that brings you digital insights and opinions. It was founded on a cold and dark, typical Finnish day.

I'm interested in developing new services with business insight in mind.
