Event invitation – Nordea and Kasvu Open: Coaching Small Businesses for Growth on April 8

Aalto University MBA Alumni Association Board and Nordea Bank Finland cordially invite the MBA Alumni to a joint event with Kasvu Open, a national initiative to coach and boost the growth of promising small companies.

Kasvu Open is looking to engage especially internationally experienced business leaders, to support the movement as voluntary coaches to small companies. We believe this could be a great opportunity to our senior and international alumni to give back and support the business community. Some of our alumni are already involved and have had great fun!

The presentations will be followed by time for Q&A as well as networking and refreshments. Event is in English.

Register early to ensure your place as the event is limited to 50 participants. https://www.flomembers.com/mba-alumni/events/register/45c48cce2e2d7fbdea1afc51c7c6ad26
