Tech and Media Club : Trekking in Dublin

Its official.. We love Dublin. The ESADE Tech and Media club has just returned from a four-day trek to the capital of Ireland where we had our fill of Irish music, Guinness, and of course, all things tech!

Dublin continues its rise as an international, talent-rich tech hub where many of the world’s most impactful companies have chosen to set up shop – many as their primary point of presence in Europe. Our group of 35 students was warmly received by four of the biggest players – Dropbox, Facebook, Google and Salesforce – who shared insights on today’s tech landscape, spoke to their corporate growth strategies, and provided a glimpse of employee life in high-tech.

Day one kicked off with an early visit to Dropbox, where we learned about the Dropbox business model, the impacts of last year’s IPO, and the company’s plans for expansion – in particular, how Dropbox for Business will play a key role in the company’s plan to increase profitability. After seeing their on-site gym, nail salon, and free barista service, we’re ready to move in, and are filing a petition to change the name of meeting room 3D05 to Bocadillos.

The visit was followed by an equally warm reception at Google, where we heard the stories of three ESADE alums and their journeys within the company. Our host Antonio beautifully summed up Google’s dedication to do good by the world through innovation. With regards to a few moonshot projects he told us, “sometimes it’s not about building to sell, rather it’s about building to show what’s possible.”

Talk with Improbable

On Monday February 26, members of the Tech and Media Club welcomed the British tech company, Improbable, and discussed the future of virtual worlds.

“A thoroughly enjoyable and immensely thought provoking event. The Improbable virtual worlds solution has the potential to completely disrupt predictive analytics as we know it. My mind is whirring with all the possibilities this technology unlocks. ”

-Tom Buchan (FT MBA Co19)

“Improbable are a massively exciting company building virtual worlds to predict the future. We were so pleased to have them come and speak to us during MWC. Apart from what they’re doing being fascinating, it was brilliant hearing about the evolution of a company from startup to getting $500m in funding from SoftBank last year.”

Seat Visit in Martorell

Members of the Tech and Media Club and Operations Club had the opportunity to visit the Seat Factory in Martorell during the first week of February. In this event students learned how the assembly line works at Seat.

”We had the opportunity to see the beginning and the end of the production line for several Seat models. Technology was a constant during our visit and we loved to see how it improved the processes.”
