TribeMe is one of the projects selected for the second edition de EAE LAB. The social network based on challenges and objectives is a project developed by Paola Rugerio, Eduardo Zarhi and Alfonso Meilán, students on the Master in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. To achieve this, the platform develops a collaborative experience that fosters constant improvement and interaction.
To development this universe of self-improvement for the members of the virtual tribe, the startup will benefit from the entrepreneurship support that the business incubator of EAE Business School gives to the selected projects. These initiatives include access to physical workspaces and equipment, mentoring, guidance and coaching, as well as the opportunity to present their projects to potential investors.
What do you think of activities like EAE LAB in which the School helps and enhances the talent of its students most interested in business entrepreneurship?
We find it incredible as it is a way to drive a project through for the theoretical stage and into action.
Has it been hard to get to this point?
It has been a challenge with different stages, nerves, pressure, anxiety, fun and a lot of working together closely with the team. We have felt accompanied and supported a great deal both by the tutors and the classmates on the Master.
Did you have a project that was already developed or did you create TribeMe expressly for EAE LAB?
We had a fairly developed idea at a conceptual level. However, as the saying goes, "an idea is not a business". Therefore, in my opinion, the combination of EAE Lab and teamwork with my classmates will be a big help for giving our great idea the boost it needs.
What does the TribeMe project entail?
TribeMe is the only social network solely focused on helping people to achieve their objectives. The startup originated based on the premise that "the social circle is a determining factor when reaching an objective". The TribeMe team is made up by Alfonso Melián, an upright Spanish classmate with great values, Eduardo Zarhí, a publicist with a brilliant sense of humour and high creative capacity, and Paola Rugerio from Mexico, who is passionate about the idea and has a great drive to carry out the tasks within the team.
In your opinion, why has TribeMe been selected for the second edition of EAE Lab?
First and foremost, I think we were selected because we believe in our project. Moreover, I think that EAE Lab is looking for innovative and technological projects and TribeMe ticks both boxes as "the only social network purely focused on achieving your objectives".
EAE LAB accompanies the development of each entrepreneurial venture for six months. How do you expect TribeMe to evolve with the support of this team of mentors and experts over the period?
If we take full advantage of this great opportunity, at the end of 6 months, participating in the EAE Lab incubator will mark a turning point for the TribeMe business project.
