Join IE Venture Network Thursday, 14th May 2015!

The Venture Network is a 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. 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:

  • Javier García Madruga, Business Development Director at GoNet Spain
  • Joe Haslam, Founder and Chairman of Hot Hotels
  • Marisol Quintero, CEO of Bioncotech
