BilbaoFormArte: where the disability becomes art and wins by a landslide.

I’ve owed you this post for more than a year and today, finally, and taking the advantage of the fact that this is the last one of this academic year, I think it’s one of the best moments to do so, like the end of “season”.

I invite you to know this project and some entrepreneurial women who, after many efforts, in 2013 launched BilbaoFormArte, a project that has something magical that engulfs you. (more…)

Do you know Greta Thunberg?

I do not know if you have ever heard about Alba Pérez, Alba Granado or Amaia Gil Salvador, but what about Greta Thunberg? What if I tell you that Greta is the name of a 15-year-old Swedish girl, does it sound more familiar? Let me go further, Friday, the 20th of August 2018, Stockholm Parliament, now?

Today the post is about Greta and the social movement that she launched thanks to her determination, responsibility, perseverance and climate and environmental awareness. This is where the Fridays for Future post starts. (more…)

KIETOPARAO: JUST 200 GRAMS

Today for once I want to draw your attention to a product created by a group of entrepreneur women. I’ve already talked about two of them once, María Fernández and Ruth Guerrero, who I met a few years ago in the MET Community program; and about the other two, Naiara Portuondo and Joana Videgain, not yet, but I had to and today is the first step.

The four of them together have more than 6 start-ups, 40 years of entrepreneurship experience (do not forget what being E.P. means) in the European, USA and Mexican market, and with great expertise in E-commerce, Fashion Tech, Digital Marketing, Retail and programming. Obviously, a great team.

HEY, IT’S NOT ANY PRODUCT. IT’S KIETOPARAO. GET READY BECAUSE I’M SURE YOU’LL BE INTERESTED. (more…)

ANA FREIRE, making the woman who “Wisibiliza”s women visible herself

Last 16th of May I attended the Ada Byron Awards 2019 to the female technologist in its 6th edition, which was also the opening of the 7th edition of ForoTech.

The Ada Byron Award to the Technologist Women, pioneer at a national level (and which has gone international with this year’s presentation of the Mexican edition), was instituted by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Deusto. Its goals are: to reward and raise awareness of the excellent journey of technologist women of today; to enrich society with technology-diffusing events; to promote technological vocations (especially of women) approaching the technological work to young people; and to make the importance of technology socially visible.

The thing is that on that day I was able to meet the winners of the Ada Byron award: two exceptional women who are a role model in the technology world, Concepción Alicia Monje Micharet and Ana Freire (chosen Youth Ada Byron Award by unanimity). The jury had it more difficult than other years since there were around 112 candidates, active professionals in the academic and business world in the fields of engineering, informatics, chemical sciences, physics and mathematics. The candidates were between 36 y 67 years old, and between 24 and 36 for the Youth Award.

Today I want to talk to you more about Ana Freire, rewarded with the Youth Ada Byron Award, do you want to know why? You just have to keep reading.

Finally, approximately a month ago I could have a conversation that I’ve had pending for more than a year, with the protagonist of today’s post: an entrepreneur woman full of vitality, always with a smile on her face and with clear ideas who gave me a bit of her time, which I know is very valuable.

I invite you to know Nagore Espinosa and her company in2destination.
