2021 Summit Informational Packet
The 23rd Annual ASES Summit

We're looking for the world's
craziest collegiate entrepreneurs.


This Year's Theme: Entrepreneurship Around The World

Join us for two full days packed with keynotes from leading figures in the start-up world, networking, Stanford-led workshops, VC panels and mentorship, a hackathon, and more. Connect some of the brightest students working on solving the world’s biggest problems.

ASES Summit is designed to create the perfect blend of practical, actionable skills, and advice with mind-blowing, perspective-changing inspiration.

By the end of the conference, you’ll have the tools needed to creatively solve problems, learn what the future holds from some of the most prominent entrepreneurs, professors and investors, and have a network of new start-up from friends all over the world.

Along with opening our speaker and workshop events to the public, we are accepting applications for members to become part of our community cohort for an additional day of activities. For students attending school outside the US, apply to participate in an exclusive hackathon and present in front of a panel of prominent Bay Area VCs, and engage in opportunities to connect with ASES Alumni across the world!

Here's what past delegates have to say.
David Lu

“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.”

“ASES Summit provided me with a fantastic opportunity to step outside my comfort zone, meet a group of incredible people, and to gain insight and advice from the best in the business. I came home inspired and ready to take on the world. I wish I could go back and do it all again!”
