Acceleration of entrepreneurship – 2018 starts the ignition

We’ve started 2018 by diving into the world of entrepreneurship within ESADE, Barcelona, and the world at large!

Here’s a snapshot of what we were up to —

In the beginning of the month we partnered with E-Works on an event about How to get started. Here we engaged in a lively conversation with the founders of Revolut (fintech), Meltin’ Barcelona (events), and Spitche (Digital Marketing) and heard about how you have to #justdoit and be willing to make mistakes (and learn from them :)) to build a successful business.

“How to get started” is the first segment of our Entrepreneurship Club Startup Series, which follows the process of what it takes to launch and manage a growing (or not so growing) startup.

We also got our hands dirty in a joint event with the Consulting Club where, Enrico, the co-founder of a young SAS company, shared a current challenge: how to best monetize the platform. Teams analyzed this challenge and came up with innovative solutions.  They will present to him and ESADE faculty members later in February.

We also learned so-many-things VC from Entrepreneurship Club Board member Vicente Juliá Obarti during an event on the The Basics of VC. Recording of the session will be posted on our facebook soon!

Finally, the founder of DriveMe Barcelona visited us to give a talk on how he turned his passion for cars into a full on company! And a few students even got do drive their fancy cars! This was a joint event with the Operations Club.

E-Club members also attended a number of exciting community events, including the Barcelona Talent Night where we heard from successful startups, such as TypeForm and Red Points, and prominent European VC. #growyournetwork #engage

(Latest announcement: Club trek this year will be to London!! And we’ll be partnering with the Design & Innovation Club to line up some exciting company visits. Stay tuned for more details!!)

Entrepreneurship Club Stockholm trek 2017

The Entrepreneurship Club has just returned from its second trek this year to Stockholm, after the very well received Tel Aviv trek. 20 ESADE MBA students jumped on the direct flight to Stockholm, the “Venice of the North”.

Stockholm has long been perceived as the capital of Scandinavia, as Sweden is, undoubtedly, the leader of the five Nordic countries. Sometimes considered a high-welfare socialist country, Sweden has recovered brilliantly from the 1990s social problems and built up a dazzling active business-driven society. In the 21st century, Stockholm proudly stands in the frontier of the European cities best for starting up a new business, lavishing with its rich resources in highly educated talents, strong financial investment, stream-lined government processes, and not to mention the extremely low corruption rate and well-governed legal system.

Berlin study trip – Exploring the new venture and high growth horizon

50 ESADE MBA students.
17 startups and venture capital companies.
5 days of excitement.
Invaluable learnings.

The ESADE MBA Berlin study tour for Class of 2018 didn’t put students sitting in a university classroom, but kept us moving from one company’s office to another, with a 7-day Berlin AB zone metro ticket.

In the pleasant breeze of Northern Germany’s month of June, we arrived in Berlin, which was once the greatest city of the world, and was seriously destroyed in WWII. Berlin bears mixed memories of pain and loss, but today it is vibrant and new again, and is recognized as one of the best startup hubs of Europe.

How often do you find yourself standing on a land of conflict, yet feeling stunned by its achievement in technology and business?

In Spring 2017, the ESADE MBA Entrepreneurship Club organized a trek to Tel Aviv. The preparation took 3-4 months, and was mainly driven by club VP Arthur Felizzola from Brazil. We were able to meet up with a high-growth startup, a local entrepreneur, and a venture capital firm to gain great insights on the startup ecosystem in Tel Aviv.
