What is LES?

LaplandES or LES is an Entrepreneurship Society where we offer help and support to our fellow students in order for them to pursue their dreams of becoming an entrepreneur or executing their own projects and events. In addition we are enhancing the connection between our local companies and the students.

We aim to do this by arranging events that enable networking with like-minded people and companies, and by acting as a support system and enabler for individuals so that they have all the tools and skills needed to reach their goals.

The coronavirus (COVID2019) outbreak in Finland and globally has forced organizations to different safety actions. According to the recommendation from the Finnish government (12.3.2020), all events larger than 500 participants should be cancelled and also smaller, excessive events should be avoided. 


Lapland Entrepreneurship Society Ry (LES) has today (13.3.2020) decided to cancel all the upcoming events until further notice. LES has based its decisions following the official guidelines set by the University of Lapland concerning the protection against coronavirus. We recommend all the LES team members to arrange all the possible meetings remotely and to avoid working in the LES office.


We are incredibly sorry about all the trouble that the decision might have caused. However, in situations like this the most important thing is the well-being of people.


If needed, additional information is given by our Chairman of the Board Janne Mäkinen (info@laplandes.fi)
