Register via this link for EAE Lab Pyramid SemiDemo 2020: a new event at which they will selection the 10 new startups that will develop their business idea in the new EAE Lab Propeller incubation program
At EAE Business School, we know that passion without commitment means nothing. With this in mind, not only do we take into account each of our students’ projects, but also EAE Entrepreneur, the team responsible for overseeing the School’s entrepreneurial activity, gives our students access to all the experience and insight of the participating professionals with the aim of helping them to develop their entrepreneurial ventures.
Through the EAE Lab Pyramid, EAE Business School students in Madrid and Barcelona who want to be entrepreneurs are guided and accompanied. The program consists of two stages:
Last October, 340 participants started to gain insight into the world of entrepreneurship in the first phase of the Pyramid. We continued in January with 114 participants, who conducted a more in-depth exploration of the business ecosystem in which they plan to specialize. In April, 43 teams made it through to the last stage of the talent program, which includes ideation and the development of prototypes and innovative business models.
Of these 43 teams, we have selected 15 that are going to compete in the SemiDemo event to win one of the 10 places on EAE Lab Propeller, the incubation program starting in September.
Considered to be one of the School’s most important entrepreneurship events because of the talent and commitment of the participants, the EAE Lab Pyramid SemiDemo 2020 will be run online on 22nd and 23rd July from 18:00 to 20:00. At the event, the projects will be presented and then take part in an endurance test, before getting feedback from a jury formed by leading experts from the entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem:
Anindya Saha: Founding Partner of Nero Ventures, the Director of EAE Investor and Mentor on the incubation programs of EAE Entrepreneur.
Jesús Daniel Fernández: Senior Business Design Manager at Minsait – Indra.
David Casas: Business Consultant, Mentor at IE Venture Lab and lecturer on entrepreneurship at EAE Business School.
Adrían Heredia: Founder and CEO of Byld Corporate Venture Building.
The 10 future startups to take part in EAE Lab Propeller will be selected based on the evaluation of four criteria:
The event will be moderated by José Luis Santamaría Ábalos, the CEO of NewBeing and Coach on the EAE Entrepreneur incubation programs.
The event will begin with a welcome from Carmen Martos, the Director of the Professional Careers Service, of which EAE Entrepreneur forms part. This will be followed by a brief presentation of the Pyramid program by the EAE Entrepreneur team (Santiago Tobón, Program Manager, and Henri Mennens, Director of Business Creation).
The jury will then be introduced and the video presentations will begin. After each presentation, the jury will ask the killer question, to which each team has a few minutes to respond. Afterwards, they will get feedback from the jury and an evaluation.

What do the participants think?
Ángela Malvone, the Founder and leader of Maleeny, a project designed to provide personal development services to young adults through virtual meetings, explained that participating in EAE Lab “has been a really positive experience with a great impact. It shows that, if you work hard enough, you start to see the results eventually”.
“My group and I are taking the Executive MBA at EAE Business School, so we have a slightly more general overview of the company. So, joining EAE Lab has enabled us to develop the areas of business, entrepreneurship and innovation far more”, emphasized Malvone.
“As well as these lessons, we have obtained a great deal of knowledge on different methodologies such as Design Thinking, which has really helped us to get a different perspective when developing new ideas, projects or any business plan. Moreover, out of hours, they also help us with literature related to the project”, she added.
Josep Arguimbau, the CEO and Founder of Arspect, a project designed to connect artists with decorators and art directors, explained that, in his case, he had launched the project before applying to EAE Entrepreneur. However, he emphasized that the program had really helped him to recontextualize the idea and rethink new issues essential for its development.
“In my opinion, the best thing about EAE Entrepreneur has been the people involved and the workshops they have run. They help you a great deal and also pay close attention to every detail”, added Arguimbau.
