Many of today’s leaders in government, academia and industry, in Sweden and globally, have had some of their early, important experiences thanks to the international AIESEC organization. The ambition with the Catalyst-AIESEC partnership is to accelerate the development and growth of future generations of leaders in Sweden. By participating as mentors, AIESEC Alumni and other members in Catalyst network will get the chance to contribute in this development.

Commenting on the partnership, Damir Cosic, President of AIESEC Sweden, said:

"It is a pleasure and honor for me to take part in this partnership. AIESEC is an organization whose purpose and ambition is to develop positive young leaders for the future. I see this relationship with Catalyst as a perfect match. I strongly believe that the partnership will significantly support the leadership development of the young leaders who are a part of my organization. I am excited to start this collaboration and to see the impact of knowledge and experience the mentors from Catalyst will bring to the talented and passionate young people who are a part of AIESEC in Sweden."

Johan Tysklind, Managing Partner, Catalyst Sweden AB:

“As a former very active member of the AIESEC organization and Congress Committee President of the 1998 International Congress in Stockholm and Helsinki (with over 2000 participants from 85 countries) I am very happy to be able to contribute to this initiative. I am also happy to see that so many of our experienced Catalyst members and AIESEC alumni want to share their knowledge and experience with AIESEC’s present active members.”


As the world’s largest student organization AIESEC has for the last 64 years provided a platform for young students to explore and develop their leadership potential. Today AIESEC has more than 80 000 active members spread over 1700 universities in 113 countries and over a million alumni.
