Know your entrepreneurship!
LBG Helsinki Autumn Course 2014
Today the last participants left Finland. Accommodation is cleaned, keys returned, storage room in order once again. What was the outcome of the 9-day course?
The participants got to know Finland and Finnish culture. They were enthusiastic about the academics and really liked professor Kelly. They got to experience more saunas than one hand can count and discovered tradititional cottage life. The organizers found themselves in front of a big challenge of organizing a very complex and unpredictable thing, an autumn course. And they nailed it! Everything rolled smoothly, schedule was kept well and food was on the plate on time. I really have to thank the organizers for such reliability and great job, Emmi my irreplaceable colleague for taking care of the academics and the participants for making this course unique and different than any other course before it and after it. Not to forget our sponsors who's support made this all possible! Now it's time to catch up with school work and prepare for our next event, the Pre-Christmas Party :) It's hard to get away from BEST!
The course is about to start!
We just had our last meeting before the course starts. A team of 17 enthusiastic BESTies divided tasks to make sure everything flows as smoothly and punctually as possible. Surprises are never absent but I have good faith that this course will be remembered for a long time! Helping hands and curious minds are always welcome to say hi to us during the event, just visit OK20 (our base for these 9 days) or send email to email@example.com to find out what's going on! :D
So you decided to take a look at our more or less awesome event page? I like that! I’ve been to several seasonal courses myself but it’s the first time I’m organizing one. And I can tell you… it’s so exciting! With all the careful preparation we will ensure high quality of the course, reliable schedule and awesome evening activities. All in all, for me it’s a learning process of fundraising, scheduling, social stuff and everything else you can imagine :D So, take a look around, make your motivational letter the best, submit it and get ready for the adventure of the year!
Almost forgot, a few words about the course. It will be about entrepreneurship, start-ups and how to start a business. You’ll gain some insight on how these people think. Would you accept a risk of a major failure, losing all your money and thousands of working hours in the process? The stakes are high but so are the gains. We’ll show you the true side of it!
This is Emmi, the prettier part of your main organizer team. I have always appreciated the entrepreneurial spirit found in Aalto University, and couldn’t be prouder and more excited to share it with you! I have never organized a BEST event before, but hey, isn’t taking risks and getting out of our comfort zone part of what makes us entrepreneurial? ;) I promise, that our team is doing our very BEST to make this course an awesome one. We will guide you into the different challenges that entrepreneurs face, give you an opportunity to network with like-minded students from all over Europe, and of course, show you all that Finland has to offer - the beautiful ruska, the lovely Helsinki, the Minttu and our very own sauna crawling!
So have a look at our page, get excited, apply! :)
