Everyone has the potential to be an entrepreneur. VES is there to serve, support and enable people to chase their dreams. VES was founded in early 2015 to boost the entrepreneurial scene in Vaasa region. Our purpose is to serve the entrepreneurial minded with powerful insights, skills & connections that inspire, motivate and help them create new businesses. With other entrepreneurship societies in Finland, we are a part of the movement towards a more innovative, entrepreneur-friendly and economically healthy Finland. As our tagline goes: “VES we can!”


Connecting the dots: ideas + people = business

At VES we are encouraging students to refine their business ideas, or coming up with whole new ones by networking with other entrepreneurial minded people. By creating chances and connecting right people with the right ideas we can unleash the unexpected. We’re organized for a joint purpose.


Power of the entrepreneurial mindset

For a couple of years, there has been a growing interest towards entrepreneurship among the university students in Finland. Helping students to think more entrepreneurially is a vital step not just to boost the economic development, but in ability to generate thoughtful citizens with innovative ideas shaping our future.


Building experiences beyond the classroom

Everything can’t be learnt in classes. That’s why Vaasa Entrepreneurship Society organizes all different kinds of events for educating, networking and encouraging students becoming an entrepreneur — all the way from hackathons to keynote-speaker events and get-together breakfasts.


We believe innovative ideas and the capability of bringing them alive are the driving force of our economy and society as a whole.
