IESE's Business Angel Network was recognized as the European network of the year at the 8th EBAN Awards ceremony, which distinguished excellency across the EBAN community. Accepting the award in Vienna was IESE Prof. Juan Roure, who spearheads the 10-year old initiative. The network connects investors and entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas.

Open to IESE alumni and any entrepreneur or investor, the network does not function as a traditional investment club requiring an upfront investment commitment; instead, investment decisions are on an individual basis.

EBAN (The European Trade Association for Business Angels, Seed Funds, and other Early Stage Market Players) brings together more than 100 member organizations in 29 countries. EBAN was established in 1999 by a group of pioneer angel networks in Europe with the collaboration of the European Commission and EURADA.

Entrepreneurship plays a central role in IESE Business School's activities, which include educational opportunities and the generation of relevant research for leaders of new business ventures.
