“Ponte” means “bridge” in Italian. However that’s the extent of our relationship with Italy.
It just so happened that we all liked the idea of overcoming barriers, connecting different elements, and providing pathways. So, we named our company “Ponte” rather than the Finnish word for bridge.
Our company’s roots actually lie far away—in Bashkortostan, Syria, Australia, and Hungary. These are the origins or significant life experiences of our founders. Without these roots and our move to Finland, there would be no Ponte. Established in 2021, we combined the experience and expertise that brought us together.
Over the years, we’ve become experts in various immigration-related roles at the municipal, national, and organizational levels. We also realized that it’s more efficient for the public sector to handle all aspects of immigration. Hence, we founded Ponte. While we aim for efficiency, we retain a sense of humanity and sensitivity from our own experiences.
What unites us at Ponte is a passion for finding solutions to challenges that can be solved through work-based immigration, enhancing reception competence, or promoting integration. We share a serious commitment to our values.
