WHAT ARE WE?

Today I want to dedicate this post in a special way to the students of the Primary Education Degree of the Bilbao campus of the University of Deusto, to my colleague and coordinator of the Primary Education degree, Miryam Martínez, who has supported and participated actively from the beginning in this project, and to my main teacherpreneur and “travel” companion Jessica Paños. 3 years ago, in 2017, all of them decided to take advantage of a GREAT OPPORTUNITY: to enter the TEACHERPRENEUR WORLD. 

You’ve already heard me talk about this adventure more than once, but today this post, with the rest of my follower’s permission, is dedicated to them: Jessica, Miryam, Ainhoa (I and II), Jorge, Garazi, Alazne, Maider (I and II), María, Leire, Andrea, Ane, Paula, Unai, Nerea, Uxue and Héctor, who today becomes a Doctor.   (more…)

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. It is very important to highlight that every single entrepreneur does no have all those qualities, values or characteristics in general at the same time and/or at a high level. After all, we can’t forget that we aren’t talking about a superman or superwoman, but about people, with capital letters in my opinion: PEOPLE. (more…)

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.
