For the second year running, Spain and the Spanish NAA hosted the INSEAD Entrepreneurship Forum (IEF) 2018 in Barcelona. We secured the prestigious premises of both Caixa Forum and Accenture Tech Hub (“La Rotonda”) to hold the IEF. To ensure a multi national approach, the steering committee had representatives from 5 different European NAAs that included France, Denmark, Germany, UK and of course Spain, alongside the INSEAD Centre for Entrepreneurship (ICE). The team has worked tirelessly for 12 months to deliver an amazing 2-day event. We were delighted to host 140 participants, covering 37 different nationalities that gained the opportunity to listen to 28 speakers who kindly offered their time to deliver workshops, fireside chats, keynotes and panels on the topic of this years’ theme; “Excellent Execution”.
For a school that increasingly sees entrepreneurship as the career path for many of its alumni, we will continue working towards making the IEF “the place to be seen and mingle once a year for INSEAD Entrepreneurs”.
We look forward to seeing many of you again in September 2019 for the next IEF. Keep an eye on the IEF19 website as the early bird tickets will go on sale shortly. To all INSEAD entrepreneurs – keep working hard as we strive for new INSEAD unicorns that we can invite on stage.
