IE Business School Venture Lab

On May 12th, IE Business School hosted its Venture Day competition where aspiring IE entrepreneurs presented their business plans to a panel of investors.

This “Dragon’s Den” style selection process is representative of our dynamic approach to entrepreneurship and of our commitment to supporting new and disruptive ideas among the IE community.

The three finalists also represented the diversity of ideas at IE. In third place was CashApp, a payment application that allows users to pay for items quickly through their smart phones. In second place was foodieSquare, an online market for food lovers to discover and purchase organic food from a list of specialized producers. The winner, however, was Dust BioSolutions, an innovative and patented bacterial solution for the mining industry that can turn sand into stone in a cheap and ecological way.

Congratulations to the winners and thanks to all who participated in our Venture Day events! Please click here to read more about Venture Lab.
