Welcome to Takeoff!
The event will be streamed on November 20, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in an online environment.
For the first time in its history, Takeoff will be organized as an inspiring online event! Dazzling entrepreneur guests, educational workshops organized by companies – we will bring it all to you once again, together with our partner Slush. At Takeoff the students get to network internationally, participate in workshops organized by companies, and hear inspirational speeches from successful entrepreneurs. Please note that as Slush 2020 is cancelled, a Slush visit is not included in the Takeoff program this year.
The former Slush CEO, 26-year-old Andreas Saari opens up how he has found his own career path, what skills are required in working life and how it is possible to cope with failures.

The pace of radical change in the world is only going to accelerate. To prepare yourself to not just survive, but thrive, in the complexities of tomorrow, it is more important than ever to be able to see opportunity in obstacles. I’ll offer my early perspective through stories of both success and failure in this, and how I have tried to turn both to my advantage.
