Another academic course is coming to an end and we are ready for our annual summer drinks event – are you?

This time around the ESADE Alumni Barcelona International Chapter board has a very special guest from the entrepreneurial and pharmaceutical world, Federico Grego, who currently combines his executive responsibilities as General Manager of nLife Therapeutics – a Spanish biotech firm developing cutting-edge genetic medicines – with his activities as a consultant and member of several boards.

Mr Grego will share with us his experience of transitioning from established companies to the world of start-ups and early stage ventures, reflecting on topics such as:

-    Personal and professional adjustments
-    Helping start-ups get on their feet and attract investment
-    Key success factors to consolidate (or turn around) early-stage companies
-    Role of start-ups and entrepreneurship in a personal career plan

Following this engaging and first-hand experience talk you will be able to delight your palate with the appetizers and drinks we have in store for you: cured ham and slivers of bread, tapa of pork sirloin with mustard and honey, spoonful of risotto funghi and much more!

Come and mingle with fellow ESADians, alumni and students, and extend your professional and personal network at this year’s Summer Drinks with Federico Grego on the quiet and charming terrace of Hotel Catalonia Paseo de Gracia.
