The 20 characteristics of the entrepreneur

I admit that the time between this post and the last one has been longer than before. Unfortunately, sometimes life asks you to relax and calm down a little bit. It has been what has happened to me. This time, due to the lack of time to write the posts as entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship deserve I have decided to write every two weeks more or less. The most important thing is that I am here and I am back writing about what I think it is more than worthy. Hello again.

Para aquellas personas que me habéis preguntado en más de una ocasión que es eso de la P.E., aprovecho este “primer” post de vuelta de las vacaciones para refrescar estas siglas.

For those who have asked me more than once what E.P. (in Spanish) means, I’ll take this “first” post back from holidays to refresh this acronym.

In order to answer propely, I’ve been gathering the adjectives and ideas that I’ve been using in the different posts and which, from my point of view, define the E (entrepreneurial) P (person), this is, the entrepreneur.

BIGEL, change and transformation

Today I would like to introduce you the protagonists of today’s post, 7 young people who are here to stay in the entrepreneurship world, in a different way. They started their adventure in 2013 while they started the degree in Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (LEINN) and since that moment they have been experimenting in the real world, learning along the way, they made some mistakes but, above all, with passion, enthusiasm and a lot of effort and work. Like them, I also wanted to enforce a new way of informing through Canva. Here you have BIGEL.

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking the rules, making mistakes and having fun” (Mary Lou Cook)

Thank you, especially to Lander, Antonio and Angela for sharing a good time, good dreams, projects and looks of the future.

I’m sure that we’ll meet again, there’s still so much to do in the education and entrepreneurship world.

Good week to everyone.

Ngloba with María García: people, transformation and growth

The protagonist of today’s post is an entrepreneur woman whom I had the pleasure to meet a few years ago at the University of Deusto. The project she then presented to me with Amaia Agirre, which I have already talked about on another occasion, fascinated me. Today, our protagonist provides her services in another company, but her character, her potential and her entrepreneurial values ​​go with her because they are part of her personality and her way of being. I introduce you María García López. (more…)
