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.

SAREA or how 2dB support Euleuk Sibiir

The 12th of April of 2019 SAREA (net) was presented by two entrepreneurial women, Isabel Alberdi and Marlene Salgado, of the brand 2dB (2 from(d) Bilbao). I already knew them, and I already liked their product, but when I met them again in a concept store and they explained with more detail one of their last “acquisitions”, I assure you that I liked their project even more. Obviously, I couldn’t miss the invitation to the 12th of April. They officially presented SAREA.

Are you interested in knowing this product? (more…)

What if I can’t get out?

Today’s post is a medley of words among which I want to highlight the following ones: escapism, bus, ideas, time, entrepreneurship, young people, trust, SDGs, fun, talent, challenges, solutions, creativity, innovation, help, funding, city halls, the council of Bizkaia, Puebla (Mexico), BIGEL and, of course, PEOPLE. Because today’s post has its origin in a re-encounter with an E.P. who I met more than a year ago. Do you want to know who I’m talking about and why I’m writing this post? I invite you to keep reading. (more…)
