A few weeks ago, on 28 February, I received an invitation to take part in a participatory meeting at Bilbao Berrikuntza Faktoria (BBF). The message was clear: I was invited as a key agent of innovation to, together with other people, promote the innovative ecosystem of Bizkaia. The idea was to bring together “a fundamental part of the current innovation network and the inhabitants of the BBF to understand how to take care of this ecosystem that gives us life and decide what steps we can take together”. Of course, I went there, after all, it is “my topic” and if I could contribute something, it was one of those moments I couldn’t miss. (more…)
Ekomodo, an example of circular and sustainable economy
I am back. This summer has been a very special and peculiar one. It allowed me to rest a little, read a little, observe a lot and make new friends, that kind of friends that leave their mark. The same one that the fact of saving plastic bottle caps a few years ago, more than a decade at least, left me. That’s why today’s post has to do with caps, but also with creativity, innovation, youth, circular economy, environment and the desire to change for the better.
Are you ready for it? Go ahead.
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…)
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.
