Making a difference since 2008


The story of our entrepreneurship society began in 2008, when a group of students from Laurea University of Applied Sciences started looking for active ways of promoting entrepreneurship.

After visiting the University of Cambridge as a part of the very first Cambridge Venture Camp in 2007, our founders brought back more than just memories. As a result, the first ‘Entrepreneurship Tuesday’ -speaker event was introduced in March 2008.  The LaureaES predecessor Helsinki Metropolitan Entrepreneurship Academy was founded later 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 are involved in our operations.

For us, your professional and personal development is the key to success.

“What would you like to accomplish next year?”
