Path 2 Created with Sketch.

As we’re sure you know, many companies and organizations have suffered greatly because of the current Coronavirus situation. AVP hasn’t been immune to it either, and as our main source of income — the number of graduates from Aalto University — has declined steeply, we’ve had no other option than to look elsewhere for funding.

Therefore, we’re proud to announce that AVP’s listing application to NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd to seek admission of our shares to start trading on the First North Finland marketplace has been approved. Shares will be available for trading as of 1.4.2021 with the ticker symbol AVP.F.

There will be some changes to AVP’s core activities now that we are no longer tied to university protocol, but instead acting as a publicly listed company. First and foremost, we’ll be introducing our new subscription-based course offering. As an existing student, you’ll still regain access to all the courses you love for free — however, if you’d like to enjoy an ad-free experience, we encourage you to upgrade to AVPremium for only 29,99€/month. With AVPlatinum, you’ll enjoy unlimited access to all our courses and extra-curricular activities, see which of your friends have already signed up, and receive one free ECTS credit each month — all this for only 49,99€/month!

 

To the moon! 🚀🚀🚀

We’ve already established a strong presence within r/wallstreetbets and are currently in talks with Mr. Musk in regards to organizing AVP courses on Mars when the time comes. And you know what’s on the way to Mars? The moon! 🚀🚀🚀

If you’d like to know more about the new offering or AVP’s listing, please send your questions to april.fools@avp.aalto.fi.
