Awarded for being entrepreneur

On 26 January 2023, the prizes awarded as a result of the competition held during the Deusto Emprende week at the University of Deusto (UD) were presented. These prizes, promoted by the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit of the UD and Banco Santander through Santander Universities, were an important incentive to “provoke” the participation of students from the different campuses of the UD in activities related to entrepreneurship.

Although there were many of us who participated in the competition, there were not so many winners. The important thing is that, once again, thanks to the celebration of Deusto Ekintzaile Astea – Deusto Emprende Week held from 14 to 18 November 2023 on the Bilbao and Donostia-San Sebastián campuses, entrepreneurship was felt at the UD and in its community.

It was a fantastic week, the eleventh to be held, with many activities that had an impact on the university community. Not in vain, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit of the UD has been awarded as an ambassador of Entrepreneurship Week in Spain.

The award ceremony was attended, among others, by Garbiñe Henry and Víctor Urcelay, Director of the Deusto Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit and Vice-Rector for Entrepreneurship and Business Relations at the UD. Both highlighted the importance of entrepreneurship and all the activities, which are not a few, that are being carried out year after year at the UD promoting the entrepreneurial culture, the development of the entrepreneurial person, and excellent entrepreneurship.

I am particularly impressed by the words of the award winners, UD students who, in addition to thanking the award, insisted on how important it was for them to participate in the many activities held and to learn through them.

It is clear that we are on the right track and we are looking forward to the next edition. In the meantime, we will continue to participate and promote entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.

Enjoy the last days of January.
