What We Are About

Joensuu Entrepreneurship Society is a student run community, which supports and encourages people to do stuff on their own through networking, collaborative learning and development. We are for the curious people who are eager to learn by doing and trying. Here ideas can be turned into action in an inspiring environment where bad ideas don’t exist.

Organise Events

We want to increase student entrepreneurship and provide projects and possibilities to improve skills through practise. Our activities are organized and targeted for higher education students and alumni in the Joensuu region, and focus strongly on networking, collaborative learning and development.

Get People Together

We are all about collecting people with ideas together. The aim is to gather students from various higher educations into a one big team. Our mission is to bring academic know-how together with practical knowledge and entrepreneurs to create a diverse network. Our vision is to encourage start-up entrepreneurship through informal gatherings and various types of events.

Inform About Entrepreneurship

We want to make students aware of the possibilities of being an entrepreneur and inspiring them to work towards their goals. We do this through workshops and talks to inspire especially students to learn more about entrepreneurship and the mindset of an entrepreneur.
