FIRST LEGO League Euskadi: 10 years of constant evolution

Today I move this week’s post forward to talk, once again (and it won’t be the last one), about the new qualifying tournament of the FIRST LEGO League Euskadi 2018/2019. On the 16th of February many people will meet again at the Europa Palace (Vitoria-Gasteiz), at least 1200 (and that’s only the first ones), to celebrate an event that students between the ages of 6 and 16 from more than 40 schools in Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa and Álava have been preparing since last September. Nerves, desire, illusion, entertainment, fellowship and excitement are present more than ever in a day where the protagonists are the students who show that a challenge is just that, a challenge that we have to face. They make that very clear in their presentations, both of the scientific project and the values as well as during the missions carried out with the robot they have programmed with dedication during months.

It’s an event that the Basque agency of innovation Innobasque-Agencia Vasca de Innovación has been organizing for 10 years; yes, you’ve read that right, 10 are the years we’ve been celebrating this event in which many anonymous people trust. A real achievement for a training program for children and young people from Euskadi who every year show us that the future can be in very good hands.

I encourage you again to take part in the tournament, which in part is carried out by the more than 200 volunteers who mobilize so the event can be a success. To sign up you just have to enter the following link. You are still in time to participate.

Enter the following link;  I encourage you to investigate the canvas that will open through the links.

 

Keep enjoying this incredible experience based on challenges where, thanks to the group learning, children and young people learn essential values for their personal and professional development.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We’ll go on for 10 more years or for as long as it’s needed.

I am an #flleuskadi volunteer.

Enjoy the day. By the way, will we see each other on Saturday?

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.

They are FINALLY here!

A few months ago two people designed in their head a different space in the centre of Bilbao, a space to relax, to have an enjoyable time with your friends and family and to toast with them at special times, but also a place to celebrate different company events. That design was materialized in paper and a few days ago opened their doors to the public. Its name is TXOKO NORDISK.

Do you know what is it about?

What about you? Do you now the daughter of LISFAB, granddaughter of URBEGI and BBK?

The initiative I bring you today was officially presented to society a few months ago, exactly on January 31, 2017. In this case, two institutions of recognized prestige, the Urbegi Foundation and the BBK Banking Foundation, have joined forces. Its goal is to make available to those that belong to the entrepreneurial ecosystem a new and pioneering tool. I very much believe that we should be a part of this great family.

Do you want to know it and have it among your favorites? (more…)

This weekend has been a little bit unusual: I almost had to get up earlier than normal to go to one of my children’s basketball game, I walked along the streets of Bilbao as if I had no more obligations than to disconnect for a while of the routine, I discovered places in Bilbao that I didn’t know (and I’m sure there are many more to discover!), I shared stories about entrepreneur sisters, and I even found a web page that I didn’t know either. The point is that last wednesday the day of the working woman was officially celebrated. That is why I thought that today I had to bring all of you an example of an entrepreneur woman or an initiative in which we as women are the protagonists.

Here it is. (more…)
