IE Venture Network Area 31

EVERY THURSDAY SINCE 2011. Pioneering Entrepreneurship.

Join IE Venture Network Thursday, April 12th, 2018!

Venture Network, an informal weekly pitch slam, is an invaluable resource for early stage entrepreneurs. Venture Network is a forum in which you can engage with the entrepreneurial community, promote your startup, and have the opportunity to pitch before a panel of investors & entrepreneurs. Venture Network is unique in that it is a very informal gathering where startups can meet investors in a casual setting over beers and snacks and focus on what’s important: building relationships. Venture Network is a great way to perfect your pitch, get feedback on your product, and meet the local startup community.

Venture Network's jury this week includes:

Rafael Alcalde, QROWD MAKERS

Javier Artiach, Tech Bridges Capital

José Antonio Vega, Alboran Corporate Finance

The two startups that will present their project in 7 minutes will be:

Manuel Pinto, Bclubber

Bclubber is an ecosystem composed of 3 real-time, connected apps that aim to cover all the needs of the nightlife industry: bclubber, entrance and manightment. Bclubber acts as marketplace where users have a wide offer of venues and clubs to attend, being able to have discounts in consumption, book bottles or VIPS, buy in advance and skip lines and inconveniences, all while using their phone to purchase through a secure payment platform. Entrancer is an app to control and manage PR’s and have an accurate account of the invitations given every day. Finally, Manightment is a management software installed on a tablet and given to the club managers, it receives all the information from the other 2 apps providing real-time statistics for a complete control of all of the club resources.
