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.
After some intense work days in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands), I have come back with renewed strength after having been thinking, contrasting ideas and talking (in a formal and informal way) about a topic which is key for me: the education of our children of Primary School and of the teachers who lead them in their learning processes. That is why today I want to talk to you about the figure of the TEACHER, the teacher of the FUTURE, the ENTREPRENEUR teacher, or as many others call it now, the TEACHERPRENEUR. (more…)
Even now, when I think of our today’s entrepreneur, Germán Zubiaur, it comes to mind a message that I received once by one of our loyal Ekin-It partners, Marian Alaez, Lecturer in Law at the Universidad de Deusto. It turns out that rummaging through messages I found one I received the 10th of October of 2012, in which Marian was telling me that she found “the perfect candidate for Ekin-It”. And indeed, that was the case. In September of 2013 Germán became one of the participants in the last edition of Ekin-It. Personally, having Germán as one of the Ekin-It participants, the new generation of entrepreneurs, was, has been and will be something I will always thank not only to Marian but to Germán himself, a committed, restless person who is willing to make his dreams come true, as can be seen in WIME. Do you want to know him a little? (more…)

An entrepreneurship which, in this occasion, has women names. (more…)
Cuando hace unos meses conocí a la emprendedora Joana Aranda (mentee de Met Community) me emocionó su historia y su momento vital en el que se encontraba. Luchadora incansable, persona valiente donde las haya, con iniciativa, decisión y mucha fuerza, Joana comenzó su aventura emprendedora cuando sólo tenía 20 años. Entonces ya disfrutaba con lo que hacía pues a ello dedicaba todo el tiempo que podía. Unos años después, cuando los niños llegaron, Joana decidió que era momento de dedicarse a su familia y parar. Pero la parada duró dos años aproximadamente, pues había “algo” que le faltaba. Así es como volvió a re-engancharse a su “otra” vida, su “otra” pasión, el mundo del inmueble. Es entonces cuando nace Casas a Punto Home Staging. (more…)
