A few weeks ago, on 28 February, I received an invitation to take part in a participatory meeting at Bilbao Berrikuntza Faktoria (BBF). The message was clear: I was invited as a key agent of innovation to, together with other people, promote the innovative ecosystem of Bizkaia. The idea was to bring together “a fundamental part of the current innovation network and the inhabitants of the BBF to understand how to take care of this ecosystem that gives us life and decide what steps we can take together”. Of course, I went there, after all, it is “my topic” and if I could contribute something, it was one of those moments I couldn’t miss. (more…)
Imagine that you already know it. Imagine that you have even had fun with its products, services, and multiple consultancies. That’s good, isn’t it? Well. Now, imagine that you know of someone who hasn’t had the opportunity, either because the information hasn’t reached them or because they thought it “didn’t suit them”. That is one of the main reasons why I am writing this post today.
If you want to know about a project that started to become a reality a few years ago and that has some entrepreneur women behind it, keep reading.
Women called “rederas” involved in Red-era
A few months ago I received a piece of news that was “one of mine”. I read it and if there was one thing that got me hooked it was, without a doubt, the ingenuity and creativity of the protagonists. It was not the first time I had seen this idea, but I liked both its origin and the way Ana Cañil explained it.
Would you like to meet entrepreneur women who have combined tradition, effort, work, and fashion? I encourage you to read on. (more…)
Awarded for being entrepreneur
On 26 January 2023, the prizes awarded as a result of the competition held during the Deusto Emprende week at the University of Deusto (UD) were presented. These prizes, promoted by the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit of the UD and Banco Santander through Santander Universities, were an important incentive to “provoke” the participation of students from the different campuses of the UD in activities related to entrepreneurship.
Although there were many of us who participated in the competition, there were not so many winners. The important thing is that, once again, thanks to the celebration of Deusto Ekintzaile Astea – Deusto Emprende Week held from 14 to 18 November 2023 on the Bilbao and Donostia-San Sebastián campuses, entrepreneurship was felt at the UD and in its community.
It was a fantastic week, the eleventh to be held, with many activities that had an impact on the university community. Not in vain, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit of the UD has been awarded as an ambassador of Entrepreneurship Week in Spain.
The award ceremony was attended, among others, by Garbiñe Henry and Víctor Urcelay, Director of the Deusto Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit and Vice-Rector for Entrepreneurship and Business Relations at the UD. Both highlighted the importance of entrepreneurship and all the activities, which are not a few, that are being carried out year after year at the UD promoting the entrepreneurial culture, the development of the entrepreneurial person, and excellent entrepreneurship.
I am particularly impressed by the words of the award winners, UD students who, in addition to thanking the award, insisted on how important it was for them to participate in the many activities held and to learn through them.
It is clear that we are on the right track and we are looking forward to the next edition. In the meantime, we will continue to participate and promote entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.
Enjoy the last days of January.
2022 is gone, 2023 is here and is coming by Panabus.
I was looking forward to returning to this space. It’s been difficult weeks, with a lot of work and other responsibilities that didn’t allow me to bring you this new post at the time I wanted, but I’m sure you’ll like this “project” I’m bringing you today, if not, please don’t hesitate to tell me. By the way, first of all, I wish you a fantastic new year. (more…)
