Barcelona gets a taste of the IE Venture Network!

Escrito el 26 Abril 2013 por entrepreneurship en emprender

Last Thursday, the Catalan capital got a taste of the IE Venture Network! After a year of successful jam-packed pitch slams based in the Area 31 Valley, the IE Venture Network took its show to Barcelona. The event was hosted in ultrachic Dime Restaurant and was supported by Barcelona Activa, SeedRocket and Wayra. The beer-drinking crowd (thanks Heinken!) eagerly listened to pitches from international entrepreneurs based in Barcelona. The three start-ups represented were Dilunch (whose founder is a Parisian of Arab descent), Kantox (whose founder is also French) and Cognicor (whose founder is of Indian descent). The audience voted on the best pitch, which Cognicor won with 44% of the vote.

The idea to expand the IE Venture Network Day came as a result of its great success and the huge interest that it has generated so far. It is a unique forum in which start-ups can receive expert and audience feedback in a friendly setting. It is also a wonderful setting for scouting entrepreneurial talent, as many of the start-ups that have pitched have eventually entered Wayra and other accelerator programs.

Daniel Soriano, Director of the International Center for Entrepreneurial Management at IE Business School, hosted the event, which was universally judged by its audience to be a great success.
