H4C3R (English version)

I wish you a good summer with a news like the one I share with you today. Not only because behind it is a friend and colleague like Garbiñe Henry, director of the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit at the University of Deusto (UD) and her team, but also because I know that to reach this “result” there is a lot of effort and many hours of thinking, readjusting and defending.

I’ll tell you quickly, I’m sure that, although today’s post is very interesting, many people are more aware of the hours you have left for your much-needed vacation than of what I’m telling you today. So, let’s get to the point.

This post is contextualized in the new Deusto 2022 Strategic Plan of the University of Deusto, whose motto is

“people and institutions that together transform the world to make it more just, more humane and more sustainable”.

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Unit wants to train people in an integral way (they have been doing it for years), people who transform themselves in order to transform. To this end, the Unit has designed the Deusto Model of Entrepreneurship (H4C3R), which has the following purpose  people who transform themselves to transfor:

To support people throughout their lives, promoting an entrepreneurial and innovative culture inside and outside the University, so that they become agents of economic and social transformation, in cooperation with the rest of the ecosystem; in short, people who transform themselves in order to transform.

4 are the objectives and priority lines of action that have been set and which can be summarised as follows:

  1. To promote the entrepreneurial culture by carrying out awareness-raising, communication and dissemination tasks.
  2. To develop the entrepreneurial and innovative skills that every entrepreneur (transforming agent) needs.
  3. To promote and accompany the implementation of entrepreneurial projects in the spaces that the UD has.
  4. To position the UD in the entrepreneurial ecosystem through networking, cooperation, internationalization or the co-creation of projects.

I invite you to watch the following video in which the 4 H, 3 C and R are explained very well.

Thank you, Garbiñe, for embodying the work of so many years in this model and congratulations to the team.

To all the people who follow me, I wish you a happy summer, very happy, in which you can rest and enjoy yourselves safely. You know, put your masks on and let’s enjoy every moment together.

Hugs and show through your eyes that life is worth living.

The coronavirus game: The treasure hunt

I assure you that this post isn’t the one I wanted to post today. The truth is that it’s not taking me too long to write it either, because I am discovering that the type of E.P. I defend is, in many other cases, a reality. Today I want to dedicate this post to everyone who, especially these days, is putting their imagination, innovation, creativity, solidarity, initiative and passion working at full capacity

Tell me more. Vertellis

A few months ago, I saw a product on Instagram that I really liked. The first thing it reminded me of was the product and philosophy of the entrepreneurs you know I admire: kietoparao; so, as you can imagine, this post is related to the use and abuse of technologies, or it isn’t? Wait a moment, I should say that this post is related to people, communication, enjoyment and human relationships instead of technologies.

Finally, approximately a month ago I could have a conversation that I’ve had pending for more than a year, with the protagonist of today’s post: an entrepreneur woman full of vitality, always with a smile on her face and with clear ideas who gave me a bit of her time, which I know is very valuable.

I invite you to know Nagore Espinosa and her company in2destination.

SAREA or how 2dB support Euleuk Sibiir

The 12th of April of 2019 SAREA (net) was presented by two entrepreneurial women, Isabel Alberdi and Marlene Salgado, of the brand 2dB (2 from(d) Bilbao). I already knew them, and I already liked their product, but when I met them again in a concept store and they explained with more detail one of their last “acquisitions”, I assure you that I liked their project even more. Obviously, I couldn’t miss the invitation to the 12th of April. They officially presented SAREA.

Are you interested in knowing this product? (more…)
