The Get-together of International Fast Growth Entrepreneurs, Investors and Talent in Barcelona

The power of entrepreneurship

The Esade Entrepreneurship Summit or EESummit brings together some of the most knowledgeable speakers and experienced hosts in the world of entrepreneurship while fostering real discussions under a 0-bullshit policy.

Now you can get to know the most dynamic movers and shakers who are creating, growing and financing high-growth companies. 

Get inspired, exchange ideas and learn about the next exciting venture to join, catch up with former and current ESADE students and maybe find co-founders and supporters for your own venture - all in a personal and informal setting. Still not sure why attend?

The EESumit's way

 

This EESummit was born to promote and help build successful high-growth high-impact businesses. With a 0-bullshit approach, the summit fosters open and honest conversations, providing a platform for valuable learning experiences and genuine connections between entrepreneurs, founders, investors, talent and the entrepreneurship ecosystem. The focus remains on connecting people, encouraging meaningful interactions, and extracting practical insights from the collective wisdom of entrepreneurs and industry professionals to inspire and empower attendees in today's fast-paced business world. The summit continues to create an environment where individuals come together to share, connect, and grow in their entrepreneurial journeys.

Startup Competition

The Esade Entrepreneurship Summit is the get-together of top investors and founders where we have created a special stage where as founder and entrepreneur you will get the visibility you deserve.

We're looking for the best 10 startups to join us and the TOP 5 will get the opportunity to pitch live and inspire the Esade community!
This pitching session will take place during the Summit, in the main stage. After the presentation, a special jury, formed by top investors and founders, will share their questions, tip and/or recommendations.

It's an opportunity you can't miss!
