IE Venture Network

EVERY THURSDAY SINCE 2011. Pioneering Entrepreneurship.

Venture Network Area 31, September 26th @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:

Jan Farrell, Liberalia Spain
Paris de l'Etraz, IE Venture Lab

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


Moshiqa is postioned as the world's number one luxury fashion brand for pets. Based in Los Angeles and Istanbul, the Moshiqa brand seeks to represent a lifetsyle associated with celebrating "Pet Lovers" and why they are special people. In a world increasingly lonely and impersonal, Moshiqa highlights why so many celebrities today use their products so that "Pet Lovers" can become part of the dream of why pets can make such a difference in our lives.


Clideo allows consumers to click and engage with products directly from video content by converting “passive” videos into shoppable videos. Shoppable videos will revolutionize digital advertising.

We offer Publishers, Media Agencies and Brands a software platform in which they can make their videos shoppable in a few simple steps.
