LUT Entrepreneurship Society brings togethers students and entrepreneurs
LUT Entrepreneurship Society, LUTES, is a student-led organization that operates on the Lappeenranta campus, creating an open and inspiring environment for entrepreneurship and self-development. The activities are open to students from all over the campus and entrepreneurs in South-Karelia area. The goal is to increase the entrepreneurial attitude and way of thinking among LUT and LAB students while developing the Lappeenranta entrepreneurship ecosystem and the entire Finnish network of startup companies.
Entrepreneurial mindset and opportunities via events
LUTES regularly organizes various events and programs where participants get to hear inspiring speakers, compete in pitching competitions and solve challenges in hackathons, for example.
Forward, an early-stage growth entrepreneurship program organized by LUTES, helps student teams develop an idea into a startup during 7 weeks with the help of mentors and workshops. The program focuses on the acquisition of first customers, product development and business model development. The program culminates in the opportunity to pitch the company to investors and the public.
LUTES is a low-threshold help and concrete support for those planning entrepreneurship or dreaming of a future startup, but also a unique opportunity to network with entrepreneurial students and entrepreneurs both locally and through the entire Finnish ES-community.
