ASES was founded at Stanford University in 1989 with the goal of connecting student entrepreneurs all over the world to create a global network of innovators. Decades later, ASES has many active branches and counting globally. We challenge our members to expand outside the Silicon Valley and solve the world's problems for billions of everyday people.
Our community is what makes us. We pride ourselves in being a smaller club; this means we're lean and efficient allowing us to spend less time in meetings and more time learning, solving hard problems, and having fun together.
We focus on providing our members significant value in the forms of learning, networking, and fun. This is only possible because we limit the number of the events we do so we can do them extremely well.
Get ready to learn quickly and work hard. During Fall Quarter, first year ASES members form teams to solve a real problem. Bootcamp utilizes design thinking strategies to teach you about product development and starting a company. Bootcamp culminates in a pitch competition to a panel of VC's and entrepreneurs at the end of the quarter.
We've all been high schoolers at one point so we know that high schoolers have great ideas! Launchpad is all about enabling these students to turn their ideas into realities, whether they be simple websites advances mobile apps, or fast growing businesses.Learn More

Every year we select 35 of the world's best collegiate entrepreneurs to come to Stanford and participate in a week of entrepreneurship, design, incredible guest speakers, and wicked problem solving. Summit is great for the delegates and even better for ASES members who get to expand their networks globally and gain first-hand exposure to global problems and ways of thinking.Learn More
