What if I can’t get out?

Today’s post is a medley of words among which I want to highlight the following ones: escapism, bus, ideas, time, entrepreneurship, young people, trust, SDGs, fun, talent, challenges, solutions, creativity, innovation, help, funding, city halls, the council of Bizkaia, Puebla (Mexico), BIGEL and, of course, PEOPLE. Because today’s post has its origin in a re-encounter with an E.P. who I met more than a year ago. Do you want to know who I’m talking about and why I’m writing this post? I invite you to keep reading. (more…)

Betting for entrepreneurs through training and learning

In my last post I talked to you about the characteristics of entrepreneursOn this one I want to emphasize one of them: the one related to constant learning. The point is that last week, the 10th of October, I had the honor of participating again in the DeustoSTART program, a program whose goal is to contribute to the developing of entrepreneurship among the students from the last courses of the degrees of the University of Deusto.

Momentu: from E to E.

A couple of weeks ago I heard about 2 entrepreneurial women and, this past week, I finally met them. As it happens, the person who put me in contact with them is another entrepreneur who also supports entrepreneurs since almost two decades ago. Her name is Iratxe Acha, from Saiolan, an Innovation and Business Development that runs and manages the BIC GIPUZKOA ARRASATE functions. This post is about women, about entrepreneurship and about the help in those first steps of the entrepreneurial process.

EIPTE!

A couple of weeks ago I visited Lüneburg, Germany, an ideal place to celebrate a very special kick-off meeting. The fact is that on July 29th, 2017 I received a really good news: a strategic project within the Erasmus+ programme was approved. Finally, I was going to work on a topic that I’ve been defending for a long time and where I’ve been taking small steps. It would mean more work, yes, but the topic deserved a special toast.

Do you want to know why? Go on. (more…)

What about a pop-up?

More than a decade ago, in countries like the USA, with New York in the lead, or the United Kingdom, with London as one of the mirror-cities to look to, people started talking about the pop-up shops. It was a fashion concept that started being successful among prestigious chefs, big designers or new entrepreneurs who wanted to put themselves and their creations out there. It was a time when this type of shops or spaces weren’t neither that extended nor known like they can be today. In fact, last week at least three of these pop-ups were held in Bilbao. From my tour around them I take some E.P. that I want to present you. I want to take this opportunity to introduce them to you, although I hope to talk about them more closely in future posts. Will you accompany me? (more…)
