TALDEKA: supporting local entrepreneurship

A few days ago I read the following comment that Sofía Benjumea made, director of the Madrid Campus, a space created by Google for entrepreneurs in Madrid, and co-founder of Spain Startup (Head of Google for Startups Spain):

Ideas are worthless, the key is on the execution and surrounding yourself with a team that helps you do it.

That’s how I want to start this post, because I also think that it’s necessary to not only have ideas but, especially, to take the plunge and launch them, apply them and/or implement them.

María Fernández: a combination of illusion and passion

Our protagonist of the day lives in Sopuerta, a small town of Biscay. She is a young woman, mother of two, who has been strating up business since 2006. For me, without any doubt, she is an entrepreneurial woman but, as she says, working with “picks and shovels” (a Spanish expression). A woman who has experienced in first person the ups and downs like the ones from a Ferris wheel, which is how we identify the entrepreneurial adventure.

Do you want to know her? (more…)
