Exciting first half of 2014 in Zurich

Escrito el 29 julio 2014 por Alumni en Clubs & Activities, Geographic

The first half of 2014 has been exciting in terms of events organized in Zurich…!!!

We would like to mention, first, the IE Master Class & Networking event, held on May 5th at the Widder Bar in Zurich, with Professor Balvinder Singh Powar as lead speaker. Balvinder, an Associate Professor at IE Business School and IE Business & Finance alumni is a board member and director at BOOSTER Space Industries. His fascinating talk about “Leadership in Untested Markets – From Moon Landing to Sub-Orbital Commercial Space” focused on conflict resolution, leadership, mediation skills for leaders and how individuals can inspire each other to take responsibility and dream big!

A special thanks for this event, in particular, to Vanessa De Gruyter, IE Representative of IE in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, for organizing and taking care of this event!


Towards the end of May,  we had another event, our first IE Entrepreneurs Panel , hostedat UBS Europaallee, with the purpose of going back to the roots of IE and put more focus on entrepreneurs values and stories shared with us by fellow IE alumni.

Adrian Hilti, Michael Müller and Pierre-Louis Beau presented their extraordinary entrepreneurship adventures, sharing with the IE community their failures and their successes, and opening up to an touchy discussion with the participants on the challenges and the opportunities to become an entrepreneur.
Each entrepreneur had 15 minutes of insights into their business ventures:

  1. Adrian Hilti – www.busuu.com; Busuu is a social network for learning languages, with more than 45 million users globally, Busuu was launched in May 2008 and is the world’s largest social network for language learning.
  2. Michael Müller – www.nezasa.com ;  Nezasa is an individual online travel agency based on local support. Its model is based on the service and comfort of offline agencies, combined with the benefits of an online platform.
  3. Pierre-Louis Beau – www.inomed.ch; the company, created in 2006, has become one of the European leaders in the design and manufacture of customized sterilization trays for orthopedic, trauma and spinal ancillaries.


Afterwards we continued the discussions and the gathering together in one of the nearby bars over some drinks.

On behalf of the IE Alumni Zurich chapter, we would like to thank all the participants that attended both events and send special regards to our inspiring entrepreneurs for their contribution in sharing with the IE Club in Zurich their experiences.
