What is it like to become a CEO at a young age? What is it like to be in charge of a world’s biggest startup event and to be a student at the same time?

We are honoured to get Marianne Vikkula to our next Tought Leaders’ Talk session!

Marianne Vikkula is a Industrial Engineering student at Aalto University, and a former professional gymnast who has been running the world’s biggest, most successful startup event Slush for the past year.

Slush is a non-profit event organized by a community of entrepreneurs, investors, students and music festival organizers that’s spreading across the globe. Last year Slush brought together over 17.000 attendees and more than 3500 companies for the two-day event.

“I fell in love with the culture of making things happen – not focusing too much on discussing, but rather doing” – Marianne Vikkula

Marianne wants to share her thoughts about being a student and a CEO at the same time. She’s talking about what she would do differently and what is it like to be in an important role in such a young age.

To find out how a chance volunteer gig led Marianne to be the CEO of Slush – come to Startup Sauna on 13th of September!

TLT is a series of monthly keynote speeches with prominent entrepreneurial leaders hosted by Aalto Ventures Program.
