Making difference since 2008
Our society’s history starts in 2008 when a group of student from Laurea UAS wanted to boost entrepreneurship. After visiting Cambridge University while taking apart to the very first Cambridge Venture Camp in 2007, our founders brought back something more than just memories. The first Entrepreneurship Tuesday (Yrittäjyystiistai) event was held in Laurea Otaniemi in early March 2008. As Finland didn’t much to do in the entrepreneurial scene at that time, the event was a huge success with people sitting on the stairs in the full auditorium. LaureaES’s predecessor Helsinki Metropolitan Entrepreneurship Academy was founded later on 2008.
Since that, we have developed a great number of event concepts such as Pitch & Beer, Cambridge Venture Camp, and Hatch Incubator program.
