The Startup Pitching Session

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 do a 2-minute pitch in English, get the opportunity to pitch live with investors and other founders and inspire the entrepreneurship community! This pitching session will take place at Esade Campus Barcelona-Pedralbes on May 19th. After the presentation, a special jury, formed by top investors and founders, will share with you their questions, tip and/or recommendations.

It's an opportunity you can't miss!
