About ASES

ASES was founded in 1999 at Stanford University by a group of friends who saw opportunity in a growing Asia-Pacific market and wanted to create an international entrepreneur network dedicated to solving the problems of the world.

Today, ASES still consists of a group of closely-knit individuals, seeking to work together on emerging problems in the Asia-Pacific sector. More than anything, ASES has become a community for passionate and talented students.

  • ASES has introduced me to brilliant, likeminded people from around the world that I would have never been able to meet. I've learned from them and developed long-lasting relationships, which together, will carry me into the future.

    Andrew Khor, ASES Stanford International Director

  • The reason I chose to participate in this international summit was not only to learn from the distinguished successful entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, but also to get engaged with other international delegates which brought me the sense of home during the summit.

    Chanvibol Kim, 2013 Summit Delegate
