A dynamic and innovative learning environment that trains the leaders of the future


IE University, through IE Foundation, has partnered with Impact Bridge to set up the Impact Bridge-IE Chair of Social Entrepreneurship & Impact Investing.

This chair responds to the IE Foundation and IE University mission to generate cutting-edge knowledge, through the IE Foundation’s experience and the IE faculty’s excellence.


IE Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to enhance the social impact of IE University through the application of its own resources and collaboration with strategic partners.

One of the Foundation’s objectives is to support research projects that add value to the academic community and society. IE Foundation supports research projects that advance innovative solutions to the challenges facing today’s society and business world.


IE University was founded by entrepreneurs, and this entrepreneurial spirit is present in the way we develop new programs for future generations of students, and in the way we relate to the external community of investors, government agencies and new startups.

Our goal is to promote the development and consolidation of new startups launched by IE students and alumni in Spain and around the world, and to foster an ecosystem aimed at facilitating financing for past, present and future companies as a driving force for growth and social wellbeing.
