IE Venture Network

EVERY THURSDAY SINCE 2011. Pioneering Entrepreneurship.

Venture Network Area 31, March 14th @7pm

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:

Nicolás Campo, Socios Inversores

Dr. Olaf Rottke, VRR Capital GmbH

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