The Moving Company: a story of IE Business School entrepreneurial spirit

Two undergrads turn student exodus into a business opportunity.

In March 2020, IE University was forced to move all classes online as Madrid and Segovia adapted to the fast-spreading Covid-19 virus. Soon after schools were ordered to close physical campuses, Spain went on a nationwide lockdown. Restaurants, bars and gyms all shuttered activities. Students packed up and went back to their home countries.

But IE Business school students think “opportunity” in such an environment.

Two students used that moment to found The Moving Company.

It is that mindset and spirit that makes IE Business School a unique environment for entrepreneurs. In fact, BloombergBusinessWeek ranked IE Business School #1 for Entrepreneurship and recognized the school as one of the best at preparing students for the post-Covid business reality.
