The conference season of 2017-2018 was a very hectic one for the team of entrepreneurs at the Management School of Aalto University. We organized over a dozen conferences on our campus in Helsinki and Reykjavik for entrepreneurs, digital nomads, and startups.
We organize conferences and seminars that give you a chance to meet successful entrepreneurs and business owners in Helsinki and Reykjavik.
You will get an opportunity to make business contacts, share your own entrepreneurial success story, learn new ways of doing business, get insights from Finnish experts, participate in competitions with a big prize pool or enjoy the beautiful nature of Iceland.
We believe in the power of entrepreneurship and we were curious how these successful entrepreneurs would feel about the future. That is why we organized a conference for them. We had a wide range of speakers from all around the world to share their experiences, insights and visions on this topic.
Some presentations included Future of business meetings by Thomson Reuters, Perspectives on Brexit by Paul Carroll and Neil Gibson, Entrepreneurship for beginners by Julieanne Green, and The future of blockchain technology by David Rutter.
The entrepreneurs that attended this conference have different backgrounds that include consultancy, startups, public sector organizations as well as Fortune 500 companies.
We organized over a dozen conferences on our campus for entrepreneurs in the past few years. We care about helping and working with companies, which is why we offer them all kinds of events, including networking and accelerator programs. In Helsinki you can find most of our events and companies, but we also organize some in Reykjavik.
Helsinki and Reykjavik are two of the best cities in Europe for entrepreneurs. Helsinki has the advantage of being a Scandinavian country, which means its people are generally well-educated, there is a high density of startups, and it is relatively easy to find internships. Iceland holds a lot of potential for new ideas as they have one of few countries in the world to not be hit by recent economic crises.
Helsinki also offers cheap living costs; its currency is strong against USD and it has an abundance of natural resources that can be used as renewable energy sources. On the other hand, Reykjavik offers high quality of life, good weather all year round, no restrictions on foreign workers like Finland does. Reykjavik also has better internet connection than Helsinki which means it’.
The aim of this initiative is to make sure that startups and entrepreneurs have the opportunity to network and learn from each other. To ensure that the networking opportunity is possible, we offer free-to-attend events for startups and entrepreneurs.
Organizing conferences and seminars is how we started our company, so it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about what it takes to make them successful. We’ve organized over a dozen conferences on our campus for entrepreneurs and established companies, ranging from small scale events to large-scale international events.
It was a complete success. Nearly every event we arranged was full and we were able to chat with many interesting people from around the world. The feedback from attendees has been amazing, so we are looking forward to the next one!
The events that we organized were focused on entrepreneurs in different stages of business growth. These included conferences for startups, networking events for investors, and workshops for specific industries like fashion or gaming.
