START Helsinki - WHAT ARE WE?
We are an entrepreneurship society with the purpose to foster entrepreneurial thinking and support entrepreneurial activity. START Helsinki is a part of the START Global organisation. The START Global organisation was founded in St. Gallen 1996 and has grown out in mid-Europe and is now expanding to the Nordics. START Helsinki wants to strengthen the connections to entrepreneurial networks in Europe and create a stronger collaboration between the universities on a student level.
Everything started back at the START Summit in St. Gallen. One of Hanken’s students visited the University of St. Gallen and attended the START Summit. After meeting bunch of ambitious, kind and optimistic students, START Helsinki was born.
