Applications Open untill 15th May 2019

IE Rockets Acceleration

IE ROCKETS ACCELERATION is a residency program tailored to your startup’s specific needs. You’ll work with us for 3 months (or longer if needed), beginning in .

If invited to join IE ROCKETS ACCELERATION, you (the founder) and part of your team will need to move to Madrid for the duration of the program. Under some circumstances, we can agree on a part-time residence in Madrid. However, a large part of the program’s value comes from intense immersion in the academic world and daily collaboration with the IE community.

IE Rockets Pilots

IE ROCKETS PILOTS will help your startup carry out pilots with real users at IE, during a designated time period. Startups that join this program usually have a clear business model and product strategy, in which higher education is a target market. This gives them the chance to run a relevant pilot at one of the world’s most prestigious universities, without spending months trying to find and access the right people (we know time is a valuable resource for founders!).
