Making a difference since 2008

While our first event concept was published in 2008, the history of Laurea Entrepreneurship Society, LaureaES, goes back to 2007.

In 2007 a group of students from Laurea University of Applied Sciences started looking for active ways of promoting entrepreneurship in Finland and especially in universities. When visiting the University of Cambridge as a part of the very first Cambridge Venture Camp in 2007, our founders brought back more than just great memories.

As a result, the first student-led speaker event in Finland, the ‘Entrepreneurship Tuesday’, was introduced in March 2008. The LaureaES predecessor Helsinki Metropolitan Entrepreneurship Academy was founded that year and later changed its name to Laurea Entrepreneurship Society.

Ever since, LaureaES has functioned as an ambassador of entrepreneurship and self-development. Thousands of people from different schools, study programs, and backgrounds have been involved in our operations and activities.

For us, the professional and personal development of our community members is the key to success.
