In collaboration with Global Keiretsu Forum, the international private investor network, the EAE Lab incubator organized Venture Day to present three of its entrepreneurial projects. The event was attended by a good number of business angels who came to find out about, among other ventures, these three entrepreneurial companies mentored and supported by the EAE incubator: Happy customer Box , Igenie, and GLD Education.
The Igenie app manages your everyday tasks. This technological tool works as a personal assistant through which you can order any service or product: trips, gifts, repairs, legal matters, etc. The genie in the lamp that is always within your reach! It is simply a matter of asking the app for what you need and it will present you with three alternatives, along with the estimated cost and execution time. If the user is not interested, they cancel the request at no cost. The services are priced very competitively at just 0.50 per minute.
The CEO, Jose Ignacio de la Cotera explained that "we are not just another app, but a virtual personal appsistant with which, in a single application rather than various apps, you can manage your tasks while spending your time on more strategic matters. Moreover, we use the PWA system (Progressive Web App), which is currently trending because it doesn't take up space on the user's mobile and is four times faster than any application".
Happy customer is a service based on predictive analysis of the retail sector. It works by providing indicators that enable decisions to be made based on objective data to improve the highly prized user experience. Its primary use is as a data partner (the reports it offers) but, to achieve this, it uses a set of gadgets and physical elements located in the stores to obtain valuable satisfaction responses that can then be used as a predictive tool. Its potential markets include sectors such as museums, gyms, retail stores and large events venues.
Roger Giberg, the company's Business Development Manager, discussed its objectives with the attendees, stating that "our ambition is to be present all over the world within five years, with Sodexo as our main client, in all its offices and customers' premises. It is also our goal to be the leading company that gives the power of decision to the consumer".
The third project from the EAE Lab incubator, GLD educacion, is a platform that enables students to discover and access thousands of educational opportunities all over the world. Its value comes from concentrating and organizing the information required to find the best option for studying abroad. In addition, it offers a guidance and accompaniment service throughout the process, from analysing the students' profile to recommend them the best programs that suit their objectives best right through to more practical aspects such as grants and visas.
These entrepreneurs have benefited from the support and guidance of the EAE Lab to shape their ideas and have the opportunity to present them to investor forums like Venture Day. EAE provides personalized advice to each of the projects selected to take part in the incubator, as well as training in aptitudes such as the 8-minute Elevator Pitch. This was the method eventually used when presenting to the private investors in the event held at the Madrid Stock Exchange.
