Becoming an entrepreneur is a difficult challenge, but if one has the perseverance to overcome the obstacles ahead, the results are definitely worthwhile. The Global Alliance in Management Education-CEMS has recently launched CEMS Entrepreneurs, a new initiative to support those who have initiated the journey to becoming an entrepreneur and promote entrepreneurship around the world.
Two out of the three founding members of this initiative are ESADE CEMS alumni, Ivo Vasilev, co-founder of Bulk Labs, and Ariadna Masó, analyst at BBVA. Out of the 40 entrepreneurs currently taking part in this initiative, up to a dozen are also former ESADE students who have decided to make entrepreneurship their career path. Among them are several social entrepreneurs who have launched new start-ups in pro of sustainability, and others who have found market niches in new technologies, finances, digital marketing and youth entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship is rooted in our DNA at ESADE, and it’s one of our major pillars both in the classroom and outside of it through the launch of initiatives like ESADE’s EGarage. It is a great honour for us to see our alumni and alumnae become entrepreneurs. We wish them the best of luck in pursuing their dreams.
