Eddy Zakes arrived at IESE Business School in Barcelona, Spain after co-founding a business that surpassed the $2 million revenue mark this past summer and serving as the vice-president of an internationally top-20 ranked education non-profit in the Midwestern United States where he was recognized as a regional 40-Under-40 Leader. As a VC Summer Associate with JME Venture Capital, Eddy evaluated over 50 startups, developed a startup metric benchmarking “system” variable by business model and revenue stage, and identified, analyzed, then “championed” a deal leading to a completed Series A investment (unannounced). During the final phase of his MBA, Eddy is also serving as an entrepreneur in residence at SeedRocket, Google’s startup accelerator partner in Spain and the country’s #1 accelerator. He is passionate about pursuing excellence and identifying then maximizing potential, and you can find him online on Twitter, Medium, and LinkedIn, and see what Samuel Gil, managing partner at JME Venture Capital, thought of his work this past summer in a Medium post he entitled, “What We Learned from Our Summer Associate.” Eddy is a former competitor in the Venture Capital Investment Competition having participated in the 2016 Global Championship following his team’s selection as the Northern Europe Regional Champion.
