IE Venture Network

EVERY THURSDAY SINCE 2011. Pioneering Entrepreneurship.

Venture Network Area 31, January 23rd @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:

Alvaro Bernad, MIDE Global

Iván Briones, CEO Zoolife / Z00 ADVISORY GROUP

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

BASICO FOODS, Juan Sánchez

Basico is the first smart food company. We design functional foods made only with real ingredients, superfoods and adaptogens to improve the body and mind of people.


yieldPass, Sergio Aragón

yieldPass is the industry’s first Ad Revenue Surveillance Tool, protecting your ad revenue 24/7. While advertising is the main Revenue source of digital publishers, they leave millions of dollars on the table due to the lack of Tech, people and a tool that spits revenue drops on the fly. Just like AirBnB turns vacant properties of renters and owners into monthly income, yieldpass turns vacant ad space into a digital commodity.
