We couldn’t be more please to announce that IE Business School will be attending the upcoming edition of the Thinkers50 | European Business Forum in Odense, Denmark. Last year a small IE delegation attended the inaugural edition of this showcase event held in Denmark’s “robotics capital”, and couldn’t have been more impressed by the location, attendance, and big name speakers like Harvard Business School’s Michael Porter,  INSEAD’s Erin Meyer, and Harvard’s Mark Esposito among many others.


This year we’ll be taking IE Business School design, creativity, and innovation expert Andrew McCarthy, who also is the Academic Director of the IE School of Human Science and Technology‘s Master in Customer Experience and Innovation program (see here), and Founder and CEO of Ecoalf, Javier Goyeneche. Ecoalf is a highly successful, sustainable fashion company, that is using advanced technology to create high-quality fabrics using plastic bottles reclaimed from the sea.

We’ll have several representatives from IE at the event – including our alumni, and both IE and Ecoalf will have experience spaces at European Business Forum where event participants can learn more about both IE’s programs and technology-based, sustainable apparel produced by Ecoalf.

If you’ve like to know more about the event, contact IE’s Regional Director for Europe via europe@ie.edu for more information, and to purchase your tickets see here.
