The Asia-Pacific Student Entrepreneurship Society (ASES) organizes two global summits every calendar year. The first one is hosted by the chapter at Stanford University, usually taking place during early April. The second is hosted by one of our chapters in Asia, usually taking place in mid-Summer or early-Fall. After every summit in Asia, our chapters in Asia will submit their bids to host next year’s summit. The purpose of these summits is to bring together entrepreneurial students from all across the world together in a week-long discussion about the future of entrepreneurial opportunities in the emerging economies in Asia.
To accomplish our mission, we will provide students with specific knowledge about the historical roots of the means and methods that developed Silicon Valley into the powerhouse it is today.
Through company visits and guest lecturers, ASES delegates will explore different perspectives from various industries about what is needed to be successful. Following the fervor of the dot-com hype, we hope to provide insight into the businesses that have weathered the storm of a weak economy. Within that structure, we also introduce business practices that have enabled companies to not only be successful, but successful at conducting business worldwide.
After all this exposure to the trends in business, ASES delegates are encouraged to explore their own ideas. To better prepare delegates for their own ventures, we will expose students to the infrastructure available to provide services, such as venture capitalists, consultants, and lawyers. Integrating the new knowledge, leaders from ASES organizations around the world will present a synopsis of the prevailing trends in their own national economy. The exchange of ideas and business practices is essential to the ASES mission.
The Summit fosters friendships among delegates from various schools and nations. Team building activities are implemented throughout the week, and delegates have the opportunity to work with a variety of people from diverse backgrounds. By bringing together students and allowing them to interact in an environment that encourages the entrepreneurial spirit, ASES hopes to nurture a valuable human infrastructure from which delegates will draw their inspiration.
Unlike larger conferences and all-encompassing organizations, ASES builds a unique global community by creating lasting friendships that are formed throughout the intense, yet rewarding experiences, at the Summit.
ASES Summit 2008 will be held April 6 – 12, 2008 at Stanford University in Stanford, CA USA. This weeklong conference brings the Stanford community and the ASES international delegation together to explore entrepreneurship through featured lectures and workshops led by veteran entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and academics, various networking and social events, and visits to several of the Silicon Valley’s top companies and start-ups.

    Experts have talked about this before. How many times have you read about the importance of ‘adding value’ for your audience? How many times have you read about ‘building trust’ with your readers/prospects?
    Many, many times. You know it well. Every marketing guru has spoken about this topic. I’m sick of hearing it. But it STILL bears repeating.
