Join IE Venture Network Thursday, 21st November 2013!

This weekly pitch slam is an invaluable resource for early stage entrepreneurs, a forum for engaging the entrepreneurial community, promoting your startup, and at best securing an investment from our Investors in Residence Wayra, Highgrowth Innovation, Big Sur Ventures, and Sodena. The Venture Network is unique in that it is a very informal gathering where startups can meet investors in an informal setting over beers and snacks 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 resident panel of startup experts include:

. David Almazán, DIOPIA
. Rodolfo Nevado, Ahorro Corporación Soluciones Inmobiliarias

. Pilar Garcia, Inversora

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