Dear colleagues:

As an initiative from AIESEC Alumni Venezuela, AIESEC Alumni Peru and with the leverage of the ISUM program from AIESEC Alumni International, it is a pleasure to announce that we got significant discounts to participate in the biggest startups conference in the world: The Lean Startup Conference!!!

This will be held in San Francisco from 9 to 11 of December. Among their speakers are: Eric Ries, Steve Blank, Marc Andreessen, Ash Maurya!

So, if you are alumni from AIESEC (any country worldwide) and you would like to be in the conference: http://leanstartup.co/, you just need to email to Carlos Marquez: cmarquez@cooltribes.com and request the scholarship. Carlos will reserve your scholarship and will coordinate with you. (ddl: Friday 29th, November)

The regular price is $1’649 but because of the scholarship, we got it for $300. It is the first approach between Leanstartup with the ISUM Program, so we are sure many synergies will be going to happen.

Carlos will be in San Francisco, so any advice or query please don’t hesitate to email us. Hope to see you there colleagues!

Cheers,
Rolando

ISUM Lima: First Investment Forum

1403538_419007128199443_1055482932_o

Dear AIESEC Alumni:

 

Startups represent technological businesses with high growth potential and many people from our network are finding and developing opportunities through very attractive investments.

In order to connect with them, we have organized ISUM Lima: a unique annual space where performers from this network are connected. The meeting has brought some answers: How to develop a startup, get investments funds and clarify the opportunities of investing in startups. The 5th global edition was designed to meet the needs of the Peruvian’s technology environment. The event reached startups, entrepreneurs, investors and people interested in the theme. To strengthen the brand and reach the stakeholders, ISUM Lima counted with press partners such as technology blogs, magazines, TV channels and important actors on the local market. Furthermore, ISUM Lima gained the endorsement of a well-established company in the telecommunication market: Claro. As a national sponsor, Claro supported the event’s initiative and believed in the impact it can bring for the local development of new businesses.

The 5th global edition took place on Saturday 2nd of November at the Universidad Pacífico, Lima. As an international speaker, Fernando Moncayo was present: an AIESEC Alumni from Ecuador and CoFounder of Startup Ventures, global fund for entrepreneur projects at the region. Fernando was recognized by the Alumni global network as the entrepreneur of the year (2011) and has several companies on the market. What could you expect from ISUM? If you were a service provider, startup, wanted to launch an startup or would like to become an investor, you were able to attend a roundtable with investors, press room, coverage, and pitch of startups on early stage, talks with leaders from the Peruvian government funds, startup cases and angel investors.

For follow-up information, do not hesitate to contact us: marketing@isum.co. ISUM Lima was organized thanks to AIESEC Alumni Peru, Lima  Valley and InvierteMe, and had also the sponsorship of AIESEC Alumni International.  After ISUM Lima, the closest ISUM will be ISUM México in March 2014.

Rolando CRUZADO, ISUM Director, AIESEC ALUMNI INTERNATIONAL.
