The Entrepreneurs

At IE University, we’re proud of our student entrepreneurs and everything they’ve accomplished. So we’ve created a series of videos telling their stories, from the seed of an idea to fully developed startups. The bright young founders also discuss what entrepreneurship means to them, and how IE University has helped them reach their goals.

Entrepreneurship is more than a career path- it’s a state of mind. It’s the willingness to tackle new challenges and identify the market potential in every opportunity. At IE University, our diverse on-campus environment inspires the entrepreneurial mindset to grow.

With access to state-of-the-art facilities, our world-class faculty and dynamic start-up accelerators, students develop cutting-edge skills and techniques for the real world. IE University creates an optimal environment for extensive personal and professional growth, allowing students to seize whatever entrepreneurial opportunities may come their way.

Blvck Apparel

Almustafa Mahmoud (Bachelor in Communication and Digital Media) founded Blvck Apparel, a streetwear fashion label, with a clear goal in mind: to combine premium design and quality with lifestyle to bring together millennials in their shared interests in fashion, music, and art. The brand uses words from different languages and cultures on their garments to represent the unity of this diverse global community, which is especially present at IE University.



Created by Erik Ojantakanen (BBA), Maxence Tremblay (BBA), and Andrea Martelletti (BBA), Segoflats is an app that aims to help university students easily find modern and affordable accommodations in the city. The motivated young founders are focusing on the Segovian market for now, but their sights are set on expanding to all of Europe.
