The Instituto de Empresa Business School and Lease Plan present, each year, the Lease Plan Award for the Best Business Creation Project developed by students from all Instituto de Empresa Master of Business Administration (MBA) programmes.

The Business Creation Department and a jury comprising Lease Plan members, managers and entrepreneurs from other large international companies, awarded the prize in 2003 to the AMBISAT, INGENIERÍA AMBIENTAL S.L. project based on the use, as an innovative tool, of Remote Sensing or Earth observation via high-definition satellites to design elements that reinterpret the correlation between environmental phenomena.

Over 200 business creation proposals applied for this award, from all industrial sectors. In the case of AMBISAT the prize was given for the consistency in the interrelation between the business team, the knowledge of the environmental market and a sensible and well-studied approach to the funding requirements.
