This Easter, besides its value and religious sense, it has also been full of ideas of entrepreneur people. Because in Bilbao, this week the religious confraternities and the good weather have welcome, besides the spring, a particular and international event in which the entrepreneurs have had their place, its name basque FEST.
The last week was rather difficult and tough in a personal level but also rewarding and, I want to think, positive. My health did not accompanied me and it led to lessen my spirit and motivation a little bit, but thanks to the support of my family (which is always there, in good and bad times), my true friends and the people who worry about me, they managed to make this week worthy. Besides, being able to participate actively in the DeustoSTART training program and in the Inspirexe 2015 day, and having visited the entrepreneurs that, while it was raining, shiwed us their creations in the Sunday Market, have contributed, without any doubt, to it.
No more than 5 years ago, in July of 2009 if I am not wrong, I met the protagonist of the post of this week again. At that moment I did not imagine that that day was going to be really important in my life, not just professionally speaking but personally too. Because knowing Itziar Segovia is, without any doubt, a great opportunity. I took advantage of it when we were improving Ingenio entrepreneurship program, which I have mentioned on this blog before. Itziar was, in that moment, charge of creativity and innovation in EITB.
The 8th of March of 2015 we celebrated the International Women’s Day. According to the United Nations “this year’s theme, “Empowering Women – Empowering Humanity: Picture It!” envisions a world where each woman and girl can exercise her choices, such as participating in politics, getting an education, having an income, and living in societies free from violence and discrimination. In 2015, International Women’s Day will highlight the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, a historic roadmap signed by 189 governments 20 years ago that sets the agenda for realizing women’s rights”. That is one of the reasons why the last 8th of March we started celebrating a special day, a day which has a WOMAN name, a woman who is ENTREPRENEUR, brave, committed, determined, inspired, passionate, dreamer and eagered. Do you know anyone like that?
Some years ago… one 6th of December the protagonist of this post was born in Donostia-San Sebastian (Gipuzkoa). Her name is Patricia Arruti. If there is something that characterizes Patricia is her sweetness, naturalness, proximity, happiness and a certain halo of shyness that decreases once you get to know her. Today I would like to highlight the artist that this entrepreneur woman represents.
