Sabina Akhmetova

My name is Sabina Akhmetova, I am a second-year student in the Digital International Business degree program that is taught on the Kouvola campus. In this article, I would like to introduce you Patteri ES and its members, tell more about our activities and the benefits it could bring you.

First things first, Patteri is an entrepreneurial society founded in 2015 that unites all entrepreneurial-minded people. But to be a part of it, it is not necessary to have a business idea or to think about opening your own company. “Besides supporting student entrepreneurship, we also want to offer students connections to work life and build bridges between students and local companies,” – says Mari Kirjalainen, our Communication Manager in Kouvola. Indeed, our goal is to build a community of international people with different cultural backgrounds and work experience.

For example, Douaa Chaloun, Events Manager, participated in the largest international Startup Festival called SLUSH. And it was the event that made her take a fresh look at the world of entrepreneurship and Startups especially – she was a *ship Startup Manager. “I had no clue about the meaning of a Startup but due to this biggest event in Finland, I learned and understood more about the meaning and their interesting effect on the world currently,” she says. After that, Douaa had a strong desire to open her own business in the future. And Patteri is her first step on this path: “It has allowed me to meet new people who share the same interest and ambitions as me,” she continues. “We all want to learn, improve, and become the best version of ourselves. I believe these opportunities are irreplaceable and important in the student’s life.”
