Teddy Kim, Mustard Seed

You are invited to participate in the upcoming Mustard Seed Pitch Competition at the annual Doing Good Doing Well Conference at IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain.

IESE has partnered with Mustard Seed to host a venture pitching competition at DGDW for the past few years. Mustard Seed is a London-based investor in lock-step early-stage ventures and is seeking talented entrepreneurs who are committed to solving large societal issues.

Teams from top European Business Schools and Coworking Spaces will submit their pitches for a for-profit social enterprise. The top 8 teams will get to pitch their idea at the conference to a panel of judges and a chance to win a trip to the Mustard Seed office in London, for a business plan workshop.

Mustard Seed welcomes submissions from ventures ranging from concept to early-growth stage. Please prepare submission materials (a deck or 2 minute video) that answer the questions below.

•         What social/environmental problem are you solving and how?

•         Why are you the right team to solve this problem?

•         What traction do you have (users, revenue, prototypes, etc.)?

•         How does your business make money? How does it scale?

•         How much money are you seeking and how will you spend it?

•         How is your company going to make the world a better place?

The deadline for submission will be February 22nd. You can send your materials to Tom.Kittredge@iese.net
