We are co-founders of CityDeal S.L.U., one of the fastest growing company in the Internet space. Our friendship and future partnership started after we studied in the same section. In February 2010, shortly after finishing the IMBA, the Samwer brothers (German serial entrepreneurs) offered us the chance to found the Spanish branch of CityDeal. A few months later, Groupon acquired CityDeal to form the world’s leading social commerce site, offering one great deal, everyday, in more than 170 cities. Since graduating from IE, we have gotten to know the larger entrepreneurial community thanks, in part, to networking events and speaker series sponsored by the Venture Lab. www.groupon.es
Holoholo is a mobile application that will allow you to physically follow a storyline through a city by checking in to various locations where you will solve riddles or complete challenges related to the plot to unlock subsequent chapters of the story and earn points. The idea was conceived in the core 'Entrepreneurial Management' course, and later refined in the IE Venture Lab. Right from the start, we implemented what we learnt in class and solicited feedback from classmates, professors, mentors, and industry professionals. The hard work paid off because we came in second in the online category at Venture Day 2012 in Madrid, and were one of the winners in the telecommunications category of EmprendeGo. http://www.holoholo.jasonhum.com/
After intense research in various labs in Spain, Germany and the USA, I led a discovery on new molecular strategies to induce a targeted auto-degradation of malignant melanoma cells. Our results received international praise, because melanoma is almost incurable, and effective treatments have been elusive. It was time to translate our data into clinical reality so I joined IE Business School. We have launched BiOncotech, a start-up with international projection that targets melanoma and other (orphan) cancers. Through the Venture Lab, I met investors specialized in biotech and am working with a mentor to further develop our market objectives. Within just a few months, we have attracted public and private funds and are ready to embark on the clinical development of our product. www.bioncotech.com
Respiro Car Sharing was born in the Venture Lab. During our MBA, we became increasingly interested in the commercialization of green technologies as an ingenious way of doing well by doing good.

Respiro empowers people to make smart economical and ecological transportation choices, and gives access without ownership, wheels when you want them.
