Social Venture Network

Thursday 5th March 2015, 7pm

The Venture Network is a weekly pitch slam in IE Business School. Every quarter IE Businses School organizes a vertical Venture Network focused on Social Entrepreneurship. Next Thursday we are hosting the first one of 2015. The Venture Network is unique in that it is a very informal gathering where startups can pitch and meet investors over beers and focus on what’s important; building relationships. The Venture Network is a great way to perfect your pitch, get feedback on your product, and meet the local startup community.

The Venture Network´s panel of startup experts for our Social Entrepreneurship Venture Network include:

  • Francisco Soler, Creas
  • Lara Viada, Vivergy
  • Cristina Álvarez, UnLtd Spain
  • José Martín Cabiedes, Business Angel
  • Rachida Justo, IE Business School Faculty

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