Are your summer plans still open? Do you want to learn something new and build your competencies over the summer? We’ve got you covered! These three different options designed and offered by AVP are guaranteed to make your quarantine summer more exciting. 

Kesäbuusti 

Are you a Finnish bachelor year 1-2 student? Do you want to learn new opportunities and possibly make some money in the processLook no further, Kesäbuusti is for you! 

Everyone is good at something for which someone else is willing to pay for — Kesäbuusti will help you find your own thing. Kesäbuusti is a brand-new summer course by Aalto Ventures Program, consisting of ten online meetings and taught in Finnish, which you can take either as a three or a five-credit version. During the course, which is partly based on peer learning, you will take control of your own summer, focus on recognizing your own key competencies and think about how you could use those competencies to create revenue as an entrepreneur. Additionally, you’ll learn how to easily and legally make money as a small business owner. However, attending the course doesn’t require you to set up your own business; it’s enough that you’re willing to learn more about entrepreneurship — and yourself.

Creating Multidimensional Experiences 

Do you want to dive deep into entrepreneurship and create sustainable experiences together with international students from around the world? Our renowned summer course — Creating Multidimensional Experiences — is back, and it just might be your cup of tea. 

The course has four focus areas: understanding the culture and people, learning the methods and tools for creating sustainable experiences with a viable business model, using storytelling and pitching to make your business stand out and doing all this while taking care of one’s own wellbeing. 

“A plethora of new considerations were brought to the table: business models, user experience, ethics, marketing and competition, cultural and social significance. It was intense. Had all my course mates came from a background of engineering, I don’t think I would have learned as much as I did,” says Adam Lim from Singapore University of Technology and Design.
