Summit Schedule

Summit Calendar

A 1-Week Immersive at Stanford.

30 international delegates. Experience the heart of Silicon Valley. Live alongside inspiring students.

This Year's Theme: Beyond a Predicted Future.

Summit is an immersive conference that attracts the best student entrepreneurs from around the globe to Stanford University. As an attendee, you will participate in intensive workshops on design thinking, pitching, and networking strategy… all of which are conducted by Stanford faculty or distinguished guests. In addition, the conference includes an expansive Silicon Valley experience. You will attend seminars by industry leaders, tour technology and research and development firms, and have ample opportunity to receive feedback on your ground-breaking ideas from experienced and receptive venture capitalists.

Get ready for Summit.

Design Thinking.

D.thinking is an actionable and effective way of creatively solving problems. It’s taught at Stanford and embraced by the Valley’s best startups. In one week, you will learn it from the best, use it to solve a problem, and then master it for your next startup.

Global Network.

You’ll work closely with 30 of the best entrepreneurs from around the world. We say work, but in fact, Summit is so much more than that. You’ll spend the week learning, laughing, and bonding with the other delegates as you soak up everything that is Silicon Valley.

Wicked Problems.

Maybe it’s the fresh California air. Maybe it’s the incredible delegates you’ll meet. Maybe it’s the amazing speakers and workshops. In any case, we see it every year: after Summit, delegates go on to solve the world’s most challenging problems.

Let's get the details out of the way.

“ASES Summit provided an incredible opportunity for me to learn, develop and meet entrepreneurs from all over the world. Throughout the program, I constantly felt that my way of thinking was being challenged from both the workshops offered and ideas of those around me. I would encourage anyone who is looking to refresh their perspective on their way of thinking and entrepreneurship to apply.”
