AIESEC Alumni International to launch AlumNet with the support of Cooltribes & Profinda

AIESEC Alumni France

The development is now underway on AlumNet, the global services web portal that will bring hundreds of thousands of AIESEC alumni together in an online global network.

After an exhaustive search and extensive planning, AAI has partnered with Cooltribes and Profinda, which will build AAI’s state-of-the-art platform that will serve many purposes, including:

  • The ability to connect, collaborate and contribute, using social networking tools and advanced matching technology:
  • The deployment of AAI signature programs and events, including ALUMnite, A-Groups, Global Business Exchange, Global Job Exchange and Global Home Exchange, ISUM and others;
  • National Alumni Association (NAA) management tools, including home pages, newsletters, membership management and payment systems.

These are just some of the many features that we are planning for AlumNet, which will become the critical enabler of the AAI Transformation Project.

2013 in review

This is the 2013 annual report for the ISUM by AAI blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Lean startup conference in San Francisco

Dear colleagues:

As an initiative from AIESEC Alumni Venezuela, AIESEC Alumni Peru and with the leverage of the ISUM program from AIESEC Alumni International, it is a pleasure to announce that we got significant discounts to participate in the biggest startups conference in the world: The Lean Startup Conference!!!

This will be held in San Francisco from 9 to 11 of December. Among their speakers are: Eric Ries, Steve Blank, Marc Andreessen, Ash Maurya!

So, if you are alumni from AIESEC (any country worldwide) and you would like to be in the conference:, you just need to email to Carlos Marquez: and request the scholarship. Carlos will reserve your scholarship and will coordinate with you. (ddl: Friday 29th, November)

The regular price is $1’649 but because of the scholarship, we got it for $300. It is the first approach between Leanstartup with the ISUM Program, so we are sure many synergies will be going to happen.

Carlos will be in San Francisco, so any advice or query please don’t hesitate to email us. Hope to see you there colleagues!

ISUM Lima: First Investment Forum


Dear AIESEC Alumni:


Startups represent technological businesses with high growth potential and many people from our network are finding and developing opportunities through very attractive investments.

In order to connect with them, we have organized ISUM Lima: a unique annual space where performers from this network are connected. The meeting has brought some answers: How to develop a startup, get investments funds and clarify the opportunities of investing in startups. The 5th global edition was designed to meet the needs of the Peruvian’s technology environment. The event reached startups, entrepreneurs, investors and people interested in the theme. To strengthen the brand and reach the stakeholders, ISUM Lima counted with press partners such as technology blogs, magazines, TV channels and important actors on the local market. Furthermore, ISUM Lima gained the endorsement of a well-established company in the telecommunication market: Claro. As a national sponsor, Claro supported the event’s initiative and believed in the impact it can bring for the local development of new businesses.

The 5th global edition took place on Saturday 2nd of November at the Universidad Pacífico, Lima. As an international speaker, Fernando Moncayo was present: an AIESEC Alumni from Ecuador and CoFounder of Startup Ventures, global fund for entrepreneur projects at the region. Fernando was recognized by the Alumni global network as the entrepreneur of the year (2011) and has several companies on the market. What could you expect from ISUM? If you were a service provider, startup, wanted to launch an startup or would like to become an investor, you were able to attend a roundtable with investors, press room, coverage, and pitch of startups on early stage, talks with leaders from the Peruvian government funds, startup cases and angel investors.

For follow-up information, do not hesitate to contact us: ISUM Lima was organized thanks to AIESEC Alumni Peru, Lima  Valley and InvierteMe, and had also the sponsorship of AIESEC Alumni International.  After ISUM Lima, the closest ISUM will be ISUM México in March 2014.

With best regards,


Join us in Vienna!


Dear AIESEC alumni leaders around the world,

I am writing to invite you to join us in mid-October in beautiful Vienna at our AAI Congress, which is part of the Regional AIESEC Alumni Conference with the theme “Converging Perspectives”.

This is our next opportunity to join other committed alumni from the region and from around the world to connect and collaborate on crucial decisions in the following areas of the AAI Transformation Project for unleashing AIESEC’s global alumni potential:

  • Deciding on an integrated alumni organizational model for AAI, regional alumni associations and national alumni associations
  • Deciding on AAI’s future governance model, which may include succession planning, a move towards global virtual voting and greater regional representation
  • Finalizing the funding model that will bring our collective impact to the next level

…and all of this is in addition to the very exciting program being planned by our hosts at AIESEC Alumni Austria.

Those programs and decisions will heavily affect your work with alumni in your countries, and we would like you to be involved from a very early stage and give you the opportunity to make us aware of your requirements and specialties of your country. So please make sure, that you personally or a representative of your alumni association/grouping will be present and join us in moving the alumni efforts forward.
