A network for investors and entrepreneurs

Startups presented to investors

IESE Business Angels Network is a platform that brings together entrepreneurs seeking financing to grow and investors looking for opportunities to invest. It acts as a meeting point for more than 200 individual investors, investment clubs, family offices and large companies, and the startups that are raising capital.

The network’s mission is to facilitate the activity of investors, offering them a curated deal flow, continuous training and networking opportunities among members, and promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences. The network’s investment forums are well known for the business opportunities they offer, the professional level of investors who take part and the chance to access up-to-date knowledge on what’s happening in startup investment.

Since 2003 more than 300 startups have received financing through the network, for more than €50 million. While the companies are from highly diverse sectors and business models, all have a vocation to scale up and an ambition to grow.

The Business Angels Network forms part of IESE’s entrepreneurial ecosystem for the development of new ventures, innovation and growth.

A network for investors and entrepreneurs

The network is open to alumni and non-alumni alike, investors and entrepreneurs. Network members make investment decisions on an individual basis, without input from IESE.
