ArcadaES: New Board. New Beginnings.

March 12, 2018


My name is Joel, I am the President of the Arcada Entrepreneurship Society’s board for 2018. I hope that all of you have had a good start of this year!

First, I would like to thank Johan Björkman for his great work effort as Chairman of AES during 2017. Without this smooth transition it would’ve been more challenging for me to take over the post as President of the 2018 board.

So as I start to write this blogpost I realise that this past year has been one of the most exciting ones yet, not only because of my personal involvement with Arcada Entrepreneurship Society, but also because of all the great people I’ve met and projects I’ve been a part of.

During 2017 one of our biggest projects was trying to get a physical space for ArcadaES and without the amazing support that we got from Arcada this would not have been possible. I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to all of you who had a part in helping us with the office space. The ArcadaES office is a space for every student at Arcada who want to work in a creative environment regardless of discipline. We invite you to drop by our office anytime and have a coffee, share ideas or just listen to music.

On Wednesday the 21st of March we will have our first open meeting, I personally want to invite you to this event, we want to get to know you. During this event we will talk a little, show you a few slides and most importantly get to know each other. For more info visit our facebook page:

I sincerely look forward to this year with a new board, new goals and a new mindset. Looking into 2018 as a whole, we aim for collaboration to play a big part of our agenda, as well as enabling opportunities for students and industry professionals to come together and create what could be solutions for the problems of the 21st century.

Have a great weekend, hope to see you soon!
