Hankenes annual report 2013

  1. 1. Annual report 2013
  2. 2. OVERVIEW The year 2013 confronted Hankenes with a big challenger. All the founding members have stepped aside from their active positions in Hankenes and new members were needed. Fortunately, through the create foundation laid by the founders, the new board was easily summited. This year, Hankenes has grown again through new events and new people. The visibility of entrepreneurship has increased among students and the community of persons interested in entrepreneurship has increased. This year, we arranged more than 15 events, of which 3 events hosted more than 100 people. Our main event, Banking 2.0, hosted approximately 200 attendees. Other highlight from the year was our trip to Stockholm startup day, Hankenes pitching Competition and Hanken Network day. Our vision is to develop a community at Hanken that will enable Hanken students to found competitive start-ups and make Hanken a fully integrated part of the Finnish start-up ecosystem. During 2013, we have sought to further our vision by events targeted to our students, by doing excursions and study trips and to increase the level of cooperation with other universities and organisations who share our vision for a more entrepreneurial Finland. A side the events, Hankenes has worked hard with internal projects, such as mapping the possibility for a physical location for entrepreneurship at Hanken. Also, great effort has been made to effective the marketing of the society. A good example of the results from these efforts is the highly successful Hankenes blogg. Partly due to the blogg, Hankenes has been able to dubbel its follower on facebook from 500 to a whooping 1000 persons. Kim Lehmusvuori Hankenes president 2013
