ThingLink (Thinglink Oy in Finland and ThingLink Inc. in US) is a Finnish education and media technology company founded by Ulla-Maaria Koivula (Engeström).[1]

ThingLink started from the idea of connecting objects in our physical environment to digital information about them, and making it easy for anyone to do that. Over the years the idea expanded to using digital objects, virtual tours, to access places and situations in the physical world.

In 2018 ThingLink was awarded the UNESCO ICT in Education Prize.[2]
