Who are we?

Our mission is to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship among IE students. We focus on organizing events that will inspire and help entrepreneurs, especially in the phases of 1) deciding to become an entrepreneur and 2) turning your idea in a real company.

IE Business School was founded by entrepreneurs and has tremendous focus on developing and honing the skills of entrepreneurs. We have our mission and objectives aligned with that.

Current coordinators

From left to right: Paal, Deep, Denny, Tim, Tarek.

Denny Morawiak (President) – IMBA-April – Co-founder of Golsie and current participant in Venture Lab. Denny comes from Germany with passion for Speed Skating, Basketball and Running.

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.

– Facilitate interaction between the local startup ecosystem and the international IE community.

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

Get in touch and participate!

You should join our Facebook page IE Entrepreneurship Club and also sign up through ieCommunities portal to receive regular updates about what is going on.

Patricia Magdalena about IE experience

Written on February 11, 2013 by Campus Life in Other Activities

Patricia Magdalena, the Director of Programs at IE, shares with us her ideas about the IE experience:

Innovation Urban campus Networking Diversity Teamwork International clubs  Entrepreneurship Leadership YOU Future  #gobeyond Case method Humanities Change Social responsibility Professors Careers Community IE Online campus Events  Experience Student life Venture Lab Venture Day

“If we were to stay with one of all those words that clearly defines what the IE experience is, the choice is simple: YOU! The IE experience could not exist without your energy, enthusiasm, and above all, passion. Passion not only to learn and develop your management skills during these months of continuous learning, but also to enjoy the opportunity to belong to a single community, vibrant and multicultural. All of us at IE, faculty, staff, alumni, repeat with insistence that  this is a tough  and intense year  with long nights and many hours of study, but it is also very rewarding. New friendships are generated for life,  personal transformation is experienced,  and the discovery is made that a day could actually have 27 hours if we know how to use them, and that you can successfully balance the scales of personal and professional/academic life.

You are the soul of IE experience, this is not only manifested with fellowship in classrooms, work performance… but  also shown  in the extracurricular activities that you organize through clubs which generate groups  united by common interests, in the  launch of innovative entrepreneurial projects,  in  unique events & spontaneous laughter. Unforgettable moments which provide you with enough power to overcome successfully the program, leave an unforgettable memory of those months, and unite you forever to the spirit and Community of IE.”
