Daniel Foth is about to finish his Executive MBA. He is a member of the 2014-2016 graduating class, the first monthly-format EMBA at ESADE. When Daniel began the programme, he held a position of responsibility at Lufthansa in Frankfurt. That’s right: he used to hold this post. For Daniel, the EMBA has been a turning point in his career, as well as a radical change in his life.
His motivation, initiative and enthusiasm for professional development prompted him to make a decision that would completely change his situation: he decided to apply everything he learned in the EMBA to his own professional project. International vision, executive competencies, entrepreneurial spirit… Nothing would ever be the same.
Daniel left Frankfurt and moved to Barcelona, where the project he had imagined during the EMBA began to take shape. Thus, CeleBreak was born.
Offering unique experiences
Daniel has been a football fan his whole life. He started playing the sport at age five. He also loves organising events that combine football and nightlife. The pairing of football and fun led to the creation of Daniel’s current company. CeleBreak offers amateur football players the chance to play football at venues normally reserved for star players like Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In collaboration with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, CeleBreak offers its football-, travel- and nightlife-loving customers holiday packages that include participation in a football tournament at the training facilities of a world-class football club followed by a night of partying at exclusive nightclubs in the host city. In short, CeleBreak gives its customers a weekend where they can share their passions and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The first CeleBreak event, organised in 2015 in collaboration with FC Barcelona, was a big success. A similar gathering will be held in Barcelona this year, in addition to a second event in Madrid organised in partnership with Real Madrid. Daniel, his team and CeleBreak’s growing contingent of followers have high expectations for the upcoming events, as well as many ideas and surprises to offer.

The entrepreneur’s experience
All entrepreneurial projects go through various stages. Like anything worth doing, this process can involve difficulty, doubts and constant challenges. The challenge of creating CeleBreak has inspired Daniel to outdo himself every day and to continually improve, question and innovate. And it has given him the excitement and dynamism that he was looking for in his professional life.
In Daniel’s view, anyone who has an idea they believe in and that makes them happy should develop it. He recognises that the EMBA opened his eyes – and the doors – to entrepreneurship with guarantees. It taught him to trust that the tools and knowledge he acquired during his career and his time at ESADE would provide the best possible foundation for creating and growing CeleBreak.
