The INSEAD Entrepreneurship Forum (IEF) 2019 is back with the theme « Excellent Execution 2: Deeper ».  This year we will continue to incorporate the INSEAD IEF’s successful ingredients:

- top entrepreneurial speakers from the INSEAD world
- a high achieving audience
- actionable insights and takeaways from useful workshops

We are also adding a new angle to our successful formula: a deeper venture pitch contest.

Two places will be offered for the winners of the IEF Pitch Contest for an INSEAD Open Online Programme of their choice. Please click here  to learn more about the portfolio of online programmes for 2019/2020. 

If you would like your venture to be considered for the Pitching event, please click here and complete your application before the 6 September 2019.

The 2018 « Excellent Execution » IEF in Barcelona has proven that the IEF is now identified as a key event in the INSEAD entrepreneurial community worldwide.

More than 30 top-notch speakers, including entrepreneurs and faculty, and 150 INSEAD alumni came from around the world to learn, share, and connect entrepreneurship knowhow. Our survey revealed a 95% of satisfaction rating.
 

Mark your calendars for 20-21 September 2019 to join us at the next exciting IEF in Madrid to learn more about INSEAD’s Excellent Execution for Entrepreneurs.

Seats are limited so make sure you sign up now to avoid disappointment!

We look forward to welcoming you in Madrid.
