On December 1, the second edition of the 'Business Fest' begins on the Madrid campus of the Rey Juan Carlos University. The event, which will take place on December 1 and 2, will be attended by the founders of the largest successful Spanish startups. The main topic will be to talk about entrepreneurship.  

The objective of the meeting, as Fernando González, president of the Business Fest & Investment Club, points out, "is to teach, bring closer and help students to undertake, showing them the powerful examples that we bring".  

Thus, the founders of companies such as Grosso Napoletano or El Ganso will take the floor to "show how they started, show their vision and the mission they set out to do, the challenges and difficulties, the ideas they defended... and that point of risk they had to assume to carry out their projects”, says González.  

Specifically, on December 1 will be the representatives of Playtomic, Lara Grill, ThePowerMBA and Velca who will star in the presentations. On the 2nd, the companies Bit2me, El Tenedor, Grosso Napoletano and El Ganso will be in charge of recounting their journey to become the recognized companies they are today. As González has emphasized, one of the reasons for attending the Business Fest is “the quality of the speakers at the business level”.  

Tickets can be obtained from the event's website, where more information about the speakers and the location is also available: Business Festival. Also in the Business Fest & Investment Club Instagram there will be relevant content and a follow-up of the meeting.   

In addition, as in the previous edition, it is expected that the contact between businessmen and students "will be as close as it was last year, and for this reason a space for networking after the presentations. Similarly, both Grosso Napoletano and Lara Grill will raffle a dinner "as part of the attempt to motivate students to be interested in these issues."  

For all students who attend there will be a recognition of 0.3 ECTS per day.
