breakthroughs – Series
Every innovation was first an idea in one’s mind.
Series is driven by a shared purpose: to build a community where students from different academic backgrounds with diverse skill-sets can unite their forces to make a difference in the world and disrupt the status quo. Series wants to offer them the opportunity to join a community of like-minded people who refuse to settle for platitudes. With the best-suited mentors, Series will help them reach a new dimension of their potential. Together we can spark hope for future generations.
“Creating Series came from a genuine excitement in building a community where young entrepreneurs & different fields can connect globally. It’s where the new generation can create purposeful impact. Every field is needed & every background is appreciated.”
– Mona Ismail, Founder of Series & President of Aaltoes
So what can one expect from Series?
We are launching the innovation program of the year – S1 – in November, connecting the determined students across the globe to Helsinki. A truly cross functional innovation program is in the making. For the first time ever, Aaltoes and Helsinki Think Company have joined their forces to lay the foundation for both S1 and future generations of Series.
‘’This is a unique collaboration between the two entrepreneurship societies. By bringing together different disciplines and backgrounds of two universities we’re creating a truly diverse community of changemakers”
– Sofia Leinonen, Marketing at Series & Chair of Helsinki Think Company
For Series1, we have decided on these topics that represent today’s challenges: the Future of Health, Transportation, Education & Fashion Technology. S1 encourages participants to take ownership of their creations, and provides tools to take them forward even after the program.
‘’Many problems we face today & tomorrow are connected and affect every one. Young people need to have the feeling they can influence the future they will live in.”
– Riikka Savolainen, Marketing & Design at Aaltoes
Before the launch of S1 in the fall, the Series podcast will give insight on the importance of cross-functional teams in innovation from leaders of different industries.
Series is here not to create another competition. We are here in our efforts to create a bold community of future social impact makers. Be prepared, because the innovation program of the year is coming with a bang! Don’t miss out on the history in the making. Applications for Series1 will open in September.
