Motivation

 "Coming together is the beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success."

My mission by applying for EIT Digital Alumni board election is to spread this message of togetherness among our EIT Digital alumni community and to keep all of us connected for professional and personal growth of members in our community.

If elected to the Treasurer position, I will be a proud ambassador of our EIT Digital alumni community and will be adding value to the members of the community by representing EIT digital community to companies, partners, universities and other EIT KICs. More importantly I'll be making sure our money is safe and used for the right purpose very transparently. 

Vision for the community

"The stronger we make EIT Digital alumni network, the more valuable our EIT Digital degree becomes.",  a fellow EIT Digital alumni and a close friend - Ville, once shared during an EIT networking event.  

It's right on spot, isn't it? Best universities in the world provide a platform for the professional and personal network of quality students along with good education. Unlike, other universities EIT Digital provides an opportunity to network across universities, companies and other EIT KICs in Europe.

My vision is to help each member of our community get the best out of our strong network. We, EIT Digital alumni community are growing at a very fast pace as we are nearing 2000 in our network. I'm looking forward to taking toward the plans of the current board and to design new strategies to strengthen our Alumni network.
