Fábrica de Valientes or how to improve the square meter we live in

Today’s post is about an entrepreneurial project and person who, honestly, I was eager to meet since a participant of the Ingenio and Ekin-IT entrepreneurship program told me about it a few years ago. I know that I should have done this a while ago, because I dare to say that I have found “one of my own”, one of those people with whom I believe I have so much in common and I consider would have been awesome to have known her before.

I want to dedicate this post with all my love, admiration and appreciation to a MORE THAN BRAVE colleague and friend who left us last Friday the 24th, her husband Sergio, and her children Iker and Amaia. Ainara, we still had some projects to do, but I promise that I will do everything I can to make some of our dreams a reality, even though it won’t be the same. This is for you. (more…)

BilbaoFormArte: where the disability becomes art and wins by a landslide.

Maybe this is one of those occasions where the entrepreneurial vein has come up to our entrepreneur by osmosis; yes, I’ve said it right, by osmosis, because when there’s so much art surrounding you and its influence has an impact on you that it makes you take the plunge, we can say that you end up being an entrepreneur by osmosis more than by necessity or vocation.

IZANSDANCE

Some days ago, searching for new initiatives related to entrepreneurship and culture, a series of videos of a woman caught my eye. Her name is María, she is from Málaga, she is an entrepreneur and has very clear ideas. One of her achievements has been creating a dance school with its own methodology: IZANSDANCE.

Many consider it a pioneering dance school in Andalusia. Directed by María Sánchez Izquierdo, IZANSDANCE is a dance academy that rose up at the end of 2010 and that combines many disciplines connected to the world of dance: children’s dance, contemporary dance, ballet, belly dancing, jazz, dance therapy, yoga, pilates, stretching and dancegym, in addition to many activities, courses and resources you can find on it.
