In addition to a dedicated Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center, IESE has started an Investment Fund, FINFAVES, and have brought together a group of Angel Investors in Madrid and Barcelona to support funding for start-up and second-stage Businesses. Although 3% of the latest class opted for Entrepreneurship as a career choice, the school claims that after 10 years of graduation, nearly a third of MBA Students opts to start their own Business.

Students get extensive support through the Venture Lab Accelerator where students are mentored by successful Entrepreneurs, and student’s ideas are transformed to a presentable Business Plan. IE Business School’s international investor forum – Venture Days, provides a platform to present Business Ideas to local and international investors.
