Attention all entrepreneurs: IE Venture Day, London!

Written on April 28, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in Business, Highlights

IE will be hosting a Venture Day in London on June 5th where budding entrepreneurs can pitch a start-up idea to investors, mentors and successful entrepreneurs.  One of the prizes includes a place on the UKTI Sirius program aimed at students who are finishing their studies (BA) this year or graduated within the last two years. 


alumno2Do you have a great start-up idea and want exposure, office space, mentoring or even some financial backing to turn your idea into a reality?

Submit your ideas before 6th May to pitch at the IE Venture Day in association with the UKTI which will take place in London on June 5th.

You could win life-changing opportunities at top accelerators and network with the “who’s who” of investors, mentors and successful entrepreneurs.

Only final year students can submit ideas to pitch at the event as winners need to be ready to go straight into the program, but all students are welcome to attend and support.

Our very own IE University alums from Tyba will be there, hope some of you will be too!

TYBA, winner of Venture Day Madrid 2013

TYBA explains how the company was created and how it feels to be the first undergraduate team from IE University to win first place at IE Venture Day.

Three fourth-year students of the IE University’s BBA program, Eiso Kant, Jorge Schnura and Philip Von Have were acutely aware of this and decided to create Tyba, an online platform for recruitment at junior level, where students and recent graduates can showcase their professional potential. Tyba, which opened its first offices in September of 2011, now has an eleven-strong team comprised of nine nationalities. The most gratifying part is that it is already starting to gain recognition.
