Four members of the IE Business School community snagged coveted spots on Forbes’ list of 30 Under 30 in Spain 2018, the annual roundup of the brashest risk-takers of the year. Andrew Wong, Enrique de Solis Tello, Pablo Gonzalez Ruiz de la Torre and Eduardo Jorgensen de Vizcarrondo were each honoured at the Forbes Summit in December in Madrid.

Fundie focuses exclusively on companies that are committed to a positive and measurable impact on people and the planet. Wong was also chosen earlier in the year for Forbes’ U.S./Canada version and—separately– the Europe version of the exclusive list.
The 28-year-old Solis, who received his Master in Business Administration in 2016 from IE, is a founding partner at the new boutique hotel chain One Shot Hotels. As the Brand Developer, Solis created a new concept of lifestyle hotels, always located in prime areas of each city and focused on design and photography.
