We don't mess around
This isn’t another one of those expensive, snazzy conferences people pay thousands of dollars to attend and be put in nice hotels with classy food and way too much “networking.”
No, this is ASES Summit. We’re here to solve the world’s toughest problems. We promise to push you to work harder than you ever have before, teach you things you never would have encountered, and to break you out of your comfort zone and your current way of thinking. On day one, be prepared to hit the ground running. You’ll form teams and in just seven days, you’ll be expected to solve a wicked problem and pitch your solution to a panel of seasoned Silicon Valley experts. Every day, we’ll have Stanford-led workshops and incredible speakers, designed to create the perfect blend of practical, actionable skills, and advice with mind-blowing, perspective-changing inspiration. By the end of Summit, you’ll be comfortable being uncomfortable, you’ll see the world in a completely different light, and you’ll have formed deep bonds with 34 other of the world’s brightest entrepreneurs.
Get ready for Summit
D.thinking is an actionable and effective way of creatively solving problems. It’s taught at Stanford and embraced by the Valley’s best startups. In one week, you will learn it from the best, use it to solve a problem, and then master it for your next startup.
You’ll work closely with 35 of the best entrepreneurs from around the world. We say work, but it’s so much more than that. You’ll spend the week learning, laughing, and bonding with the other delegates as you soak up everything that is Silicon Valley.
Maybe its the fresh Californian air. Maybe its the incredible delegates you’ll meet. Maybe its the amazing speakers and workshops. In any case, we see it every year: after Summit, delegates always go on to solve the world’s most challenging problems.

In order to apply you need to visit "Further official information" below and fill the online application form.
However, we realize that a written application is not sufficient to get to know an applicant, so we will hold second round Skype interviews for applicants we are particularly interested in. We will be interviewing select applicants via Skype on a rolling basis. Thus, we strongly encourage you to submit your application early for a better chance of acceptance. We will send out decision letters no later than the end of January.
ASES Summit is held at the heart of Silicon Valley, the life and blood of the technology world. By now you know that during the Summit week, you will meet incredible entrepreneurs, visit amazing tech-ventures, and work on your very own pitch presentations. We feel that delegates with an ardent passion for entrepreneurship and technology or even prior professional experiences in the tech-sphere will be able to both gain and contribute more out of their Summit. We hope you keep this in mind as you apply.
