DAIN Studios to oversee AI Monday, the events series

  • The AI Monday was established by Finnish consulting firm Taival in 2017
  • The relationship between DAIN Studios and AI Monday dates back to 2018, when the co-founders of DAIN Studios, Dirk Hofmann and Ulla Kruhse-Lehtonen, were event speakers.
  • In the hands of DAIN Studios, AI Monday will reach a wider audience—empowering more businesses to harness the potential of AI for growth.

Helsinki. 23 January, 2023: AI Monday has taken a significant step forward with the announcement that DAIN Studios will assume control of the influential AI event series.

This move comes at a time when the interest in emerging technology is at an all-time high and digital advancements are pushing the limits of what can be achieved with AI.

“At DAIN Studios we believe in finding synergies between the business and AI communities. So, we’re really excited about this new adventure,” says Dirk Hofmann, DAIN Studios co-founder.

DAIN Studios and AI Monday have a long-standing relationship

AI Monday, the influential event series for business professionals and tech enthusiasts, was founded in 2017 by the Finnish consultancy firm Taival. Under the leadership of Michael Hanf and Juri Stobbe, the series focused on fostering connections and providing a practical, straight-forward perspective on AI. As a result, the summits quickly gained popularity in Finland and then Europe more broadly.

DAIN Studios has had a longstanding relationship with AI Monday. Co-founders Dirk Hofmann and Ulla Kruhse-Lehtonen gave presentations at the event as early as 2018.

“Since I first came across AI Monday some years ago now I’ve been impressed by the openness and approachability of the organization. It’s a perfect fit for DAIN Studios,” says Dirk Hofmann, DAIN Studios co-founder.

Finding synergies in an evolving field

As AI develops at pace, it presents many possibilities for growth and innovation. However, many organizations are unable to capitalize on these opportunities due to a shortage of relevant skills and understanding.

AI Monday is dedicated to filling the gap—offering practical and actionable content that can be applied to real-world business challenges.

2023 will be a breakout year for AI. We know many in the business community want to know more about the latest tech but don’t know how. That’s why the straight-talking approach of AI Monday is so important. The event series is designed to offer content that can be understood by everyone,” says Dirk Hofmann.

AI Monday is poised for greater success

By working alongside DAIN Studios, AI Monday will be able to offer more events, more inspiration, more networking opportunities, and more chances for companies to leverage AI for growth.

As part of this new chapter, AI Monday will undergo a rebrand. The process includes website restyling. The enhanced design will improve the company’s online presence and make it simpler to share information about upcoming events and company news.

About AI Monday

AI Monday creates intimate alliances between businesses and the tech sector.

We believe that many AI events are overly techy. Often there’s too much focus on the technical details and not enough time spent on business impact. That’s why we put on jargon-free Q&As, talks, panel discussions, and mingling sessions.

We share knowledge and encourage organizations to get more out of technology in an open-minded environment where we can all learn, laugh, and feel supported.

So far the networking events have gathered 7500+ people. We’ve been enlightened by talks by 200+ speakers in 9 cities.
