Club activities

We have 3 categories of events:

1) The creative crunch: This is a brainstorming event where students come together in a casual atmosphere to explore and develop potential business ideas.

For aspiring entrepreneurs that look for an idea.

2) The pitch night: Startup teams get the opportunity to present their idea in front of fellow entrepreneurs. They receive critical feedback on their business models and presentation techniques.

For founders that want to test their idea.

Luis Iván Cuende talking about tech-entrepreneurship at a young age

3) The speaker series: This is our flagship event series, where we invite inspirational entrepreneurs and investors to come and talk about their successes and failures. In 2013, we had already Raul Valdes Perez who presented his book: “Advice is for winners” and Luis Ivan Cuende who talked about tech-entrepreneurship at a young age (he had started 3 companies by the age of 17).

For everyone – really!

Our vision

For us, IE is about entrepreneurship. Going forward we want to:

– Continue to bring great speakers to Campus and offer at least one event per month.

– Raise the profile of the club by co-operating with the entrepreneurship clubs from other top business schools.
