Last Friday, 6 October 2023, I delivered a session on entrepreneurial attitude in the Deusto START I ath the University of  Deusto. Another year and new participants, students from different degrees and double degrees who have decided to take advantage of an opportunity that many of us have not had throughout our studies. So, first of all, congratulations to all the people who believe in and are committed to this type of programme, in this case, the participants and the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit (Deusto Emprende) of the University of Deusto.

This one’s for you, ama.

“Daughter, from whom did you inherit so much creativity? You should have dedicated yourself to this”. These are the words that my ama (my mother) repeated to me every time I showed her one of my “creations”, whether it was a visual thinking, one of my drawings (which some people affectionately call “dibujines”), one of my robots or my sustainable wooden “little houses” (she still has in her house two of the creations with which I “let myself go” the most).

Dispelling the myth about social entrepreneurhsip

Today’s post was not this one, but I admit that, by chance, while I was looking for information for “the post I was writing”, I came across a video that I liked. It could not be otherwise, I confess. I have a special affection for Ashoka. The video I am sharing with you today seems very clear and direct.

What do I like about this video? Above all, I like the fact that Maite Arango y Alexandra Mitjans, two women from different generations of Ashoka, talk about social entrepreneurship. Among the keywords of their conversation, I share with you the following:

  • Work
  • Challenges
  • Solutions
  • Innovation
  • Initiatives
  • Impacts
  • Contribution
  • Legacy
  • Technology
  • Humanity
  • Ethic
  • Education
  • Awareness
  • Commitment
  • Empathy
  • Sustainability
  • Conviction
  • Collaboration (intergenerational, institutional, organizational, corporate, global, international, etc.)

¿What is your main option? Difficult, right?

Thanks, Ashoka, for your daily work.

I will be back in two weeks. Enjoy June.

The post I bring you today is dedicated to a person who is very special to me. I’m talking about someone I met a few years ago when she was studying Primary Education at the University of Deusto and I was one of her professors. She was a very hardworking, constant and committed student, by the way. Besides, I was “lucky” to be the tutor of her final degree about education and entrepreneurship, which she did with her colleague Jennifer Silveria. Her name is Jessica Paños-Castro. Today, she is a teacher in Primary Education and my fellow sufferer.

This is not the first time I’m talking about her, but it is the first time I’m talking about something different. If you keep reading, you’ll know her new facet. Do you want to? (more…)
