Past Forum Testimonials
IEF2019 delivered a 95% satisfaction rating and is identified as a key event in the INSEAD entrepreneurial calendar worldwide.
It was the best INSEAD event I've been to and I go to quite a few of them. What made this Forum so special is that most of the attendees were lifelong entrepreneurs who were very candid in sharing their stories without leaving out the struggles. The panel discussions were very inspiring and the networking sessions were a lot of fun. I'll definitely try to attend all future INSEAD Entrepreneurship Forums from now on.
Tim Wekezer, MBA' 15J, Founder of Waitrr
The IEF gave me a lift up: great content, relevant contacts, all in a relaxed while studious atmosphere. The fact of belonging to INSEAD had already broken the ice and made discussions immediately useful. It was very easy to meet lots of new people and, as always, the international mix of INSEAD was totally unique! It felt like family.
Jean Haguet, MBA'96D, Strategy Consultant Caravela Consulting
Every entrepreneur is at some level also a content maker, because they have to tell their story coherently and attractively. Seeing everyone at the conference do this so well, and so differently, was highly instructive and well worth the trip.
Alex Connock, MBA'93J, Founder and Managing Director at MISSILE Digital

Peer Kolendorf, MBA' 78, Founder of Comitel Holding A/S
A very stimulating alumni gathering bringing together super energizing fresh startups and experienced serial entrepreneurs and investors. Great opportunity to meet INSEAD members of the startup ecosystem
Sandra Martin Moran, AMP' 18Jul, Chief Legal Officer INSUD PHARMA
There is something distinct about the INSEAD Entrepreneurship Forum: there are no glow in the dark egos. Every participant has incredible tacit knowledge backed by a real desire to offer candid, honest, personal insights. I have never witnessed this in other similar events around entrepreneurship and perhaps it is because the event is powered by the desire to see other Alumni succeed like the veterans on the panels. This is priceless.
