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.

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…)

Thank goodness, I didn’t miss it!

Last Thursday, the 16th of November, the Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros de Telecomunicación del País Vasco (the Official Association of Telecommunication Engineers of the Basque Country) started the celebration of the 50 years of the Association with an event at street level, none other than at the Zubiarte Shopping Centre, in Bilbao.

There I was to support them, mainly because I know “a little” their dean, Álvaro Ubierna, of whom I have told you before. For me, without any doubt, an E.P.

I have to admit that, the fact that the Official Association of Engineers was celebrating their anniversary in a space reserved for fashion supresied me. I have to tell you the night was getting better by the minute. Do you want to know what this type of event has to do with a blog about entrepreneurship? I encourage you to keep reading. (more…)

Being kidpreneurs

Why? What is that? What does it say? Or why not? These are some of the questions most parents (I include myself among those) have or have had to answer many times a day to our children during their first years of life. Why do these questions change or disappear when they (we) start getting old? Moreover, why do some of us have to use the extracurricular programs to “give back” to our children their own attitudes and skills?

Today, I would like to focus on the education of the entrepreneurial competence of our children and think out loud. (more…)

ESCUELAB: A dream comes true

Last Thursday 1st of December 2016, I was able to attend the 2nd Education, Future and Technology Forum (XLDesafío), which took place at the University of Deusto, a cycle of forums about education organized by the magazine XLSemanal together with the Telefónica Foundation and Human Age Institute, in collaboration with Air Europa. The issue to discuss was the big challenges of education on the 21st century. Our entrepreneur and protagonist of this post, Cristina Balbás, was there.

If you are interested in the future and its development, I encourage you to dedicate a few minutes to what Cristina and her team of entrepreneurs are suggesting us. (more…)
