What is grit?
Grit, or as the dictionary defines it: “courage and determination despite difficulty”, encapsulates the hard-working, straight-talking Åland mentality (also known as “egensinne” or “willfulness”) to a tee.
We expect nothing less from our students, shaping grit:lab to become a “lab” of experimentation and collective creativity where talented and motivated individuals immerse themselves in the high-growth mindset of always pushing for better.
A social initative.
grit:lab is an initiative started by the Åland government in collaboration with Paf and Ålands Yrkesgymnasium, based on the 01 Edu pedagogy. The program aims to make a beneficial contribution to the Åland society by bringing in new talent, furthering the growth of the Åland tech and startup industry and strengthening the local education system and job market.
The partner network initiative’s main goal is to connect the grit:lab students with local tech businesses. Together, we want to create new opportunities for and support talented individuals in joining the Åland community.
