Suvi Lehtonen

Leading the Board of LaureaES for the second year, I focus more on the individual’s own development and promoting entrepreneurial mindset. I’m studying BBA majoring in Marketing and Leadership, and I have been involved in LaureaES since starting my studies in 2016. It has been the best time of my life, and all the networks and knowledge that I have gained has helped me to achieve great things in other areas as well. Under my chairmanship, I hope that everyone in our community feels the same and archive their goals.

Visa Kiikka

As this years Vice-Chairman, I’m excited to develop the community to the fullest and bring some new/old events to the spotlight. I’m in my second year of business studies and running my company on the side! I’m highly passionate about gaming and event management!

Siim Raja

I take care of LaureaES accounting, more like simple things. I also participate in the planning of different events, for example, Entrepreneurship Tuesday in Hyvinkää and Hatch.

Rasheed Ataruwa
Head of Events

Being a Head of Events mean that I’m responsible of the events that LaureaES has to offer.

The reason I joined in LaureaES is that I wan’t to know everything that is needed to be a successful entrepreneur and LaureaES can help me in my journey.

Jouni Hoppania
PR & Partnerships

I’m oldest member of the board. Been involved in lots of things from IT to security to energy for several decades. I’ve started a few companies, went to hell and back when learning real world entrepreneurship and now I’ve found my flow: it’s all about people, innovations, entrepreneurship and continuous learning. I’m studying business administration in Laurea UAS but I’ll never stop learning. I try to listen and learn as much as possible from everyone and I value personal integrity highly.

Jegor Karasjov
Metropolia Ambassador


I study in Metropolia Myyrmäki campus, meaning I am an ambassador here in LaureaES. My primary objective is to promote LaureaES’ activities among Metropolia students and let them know there are interesting entrepreneurial things happening outside of school.

I joined LaureaES for mostly experience and networks. This society provides situations where you can prove, test and challenge yourself. And people, people are the most valuable resource you can have nowadays.

Mahady Chowdhury
Metropolia Ambassador


I am a Metropolia Ambassador of the Board LaureaES 2019. My purpose is to act as a catalyst to build a collaborative relationship between Metropolia UAS and LaureaES. I am in my final year of IT studies. I encourage students from Metropolia to join the LaureaES community. Welcome to the community!

Mika Leminen
Event Manager

I focus mainly on event planning and managing. I want to especially grow on that area in LaureaES.

I wanted to find people with similar interests to develop themselves and each other. That is the main reason. Secondary reasons are that I wanted to learn event managing and to get out of my comfort zone.

Eeva Laakso
International Relations

I’m a first-year Hospitality Management student at Leppävaara Campus. I am especially interested in event management and multicultural affairs as LaureaES is much more than only entrepreneurial spirit.

I will be away for the Spring as I am doing my job placement in the UK, but my absence is only a perfect reason for being the Head of International Relations. I am confident indeed that board of 2019 will have an extraordinary year with the LaureaES community. Let’s be in touch!


Khanh Ngo


I’m a first year BIT student in Laurea UAS Leppävaara campus. I’m your Asian friendly neighbor with an outgoing attitude, so you can say I’m quite of an interactive person. Communicating is one of my strength and I’m also efficient when it comes to organizing and managing. As a bonus, graphical work like photography is my hobby.
