    We're aware of this and we're sorry! In the beginning we asked how many didn't speak Finnish, there were two, so we asked some people to translate to them. Also the tweeting was in English. In the future we have to think about this – we don't want to exclude anyone nor do we want the Finns to shy away from discussion because of the language. Perhaps having something in both languages would work?

    Absolutely seconded, though maybe something was discussed in the beginning (were you from the very beginning?).

    To communicate conference in English but speak only Finnish is not funny, finns.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
