Ecuador would like to have a week with you.

Communicating Innovation

Selling an idea can be complicated. In this short session we will tell you why many attempts fail and give you the tools needed to communicate innovative ideas more effectively.

Destination Hong Kong

What do an aerospace engineer, an architect, a business student, a martial artist, a neuroscientist, a sustainable fashion student, and an industrial designer have in common? They're teaming up for a student trip to Hong Kong this December.

Startup Day Grande Finale

In 2006 Pluto was downgraded, Google bought Youtube, and SSES launched Startup Day, gathering a small and growing community of entrepreneurs and startup enthusiasts under one roof. It was the first such roof of its kind.
