His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales visited IE Business School as part of the Youth Entrepreneurship Seminar, organized by IE Business School and Youth Business International (YBI), organization which he presides.
In his visit, Prince Charles met with young entrepreneurs and senior executives at IE in a workshop debate on entrepreneurship. IE’s young entrepreneurs had the opportunity to meet the Prince in an event presided by Diego del Alcázar, President of IE Business School, Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, Dean of IE, and Juan José Güemes, President of IE Business School’s International Center for Entrepreneurial Management accompanied by Andrew Davenport, CEO of the YBI. Prince Charles showed an interest in entrepreneurial projects developed by young entrepreneurs at the School, businesses like BitBrain, centered on the development and commercialization of brain-computer interface technology; Fluff, specialized in the design of toys for children’s development; or Vaelsys, specialized in artificial vision solutions. These projects were developed under the aegis of the Banespyme Orange School, an initiative launched by IE Business School, Orange, and Banesto Society and Technology Foundation, to promote technology-based start-ups.
