Can startups make money and have a positive impact on the world at the same time? Whose problems should companies focus on solving? How can you get started if you have an idea or a team, or would like to have one or the other?
Tune in to hear how startups can help us reach UN’s Sustainable Development Goals while being profitable, and to learn of the many opportunities for aspiring founders provided by the entrepreneurship ecosystem and networks in Finland. You’ll also hear four people from different backgrounds discuss entrepreneurship in their everyday life, and what it means to them.
The webinar is hosted by Aalto University, known across the world for its vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem and culture, powered by both student-led activities and the university's education, research, and innovation hubs. In addition to the 70–100 startups founded in the ecosystem every year, the Aalto community has given birth to world-class and world-changing events like Slush and Junction. The aim of Aalto University — and especially its entrepreneurship education program, Aalto Ventures Program — is to arm its over 12 000 students and faculty with an entrepreneurial mindset and direct their notable brainpower towards building solutions for a sustainable future.
