Joensuu Entrepreneurship Society JoES is a student run organization. We are an active party in the Joensuu entrepreneurship scene and we organize a lot of events for students. Our goal is to bring people with an entrepreneurial mindset together and to give students a chance to network. We are a community open for all.
We offer students and anyone who is interested in entrepreneurship lots of inspiration and information. By attending our events you can also get very practical tips for developing yourself and your business idea. Most importantly we think entrepreneurship is about more than just running a business: it is a way of life and a way of thinking. We want to encourage everyone to get to know new people and to try new things. We support an entrepreneurial mindset. Stay tuned and follow our actions and you may learn something valuable!
