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.

If you are from Bizkaia and your intention is to start your business through designing, developing and/or innovating an app, a game, a program or something similar, creating media content, or developing an idea where “the digital” is present in some way, you are reading the right post.

Betting for entrepreneurs through training and learning

In my last post I talked to you about the characteristics of entrepreneursOn this one I want to emphasize one of them: the one related to constant learning.

IZANSDANCE

Some days ago, searching for new initiatives related to entrepreneurship and culture, a series of videos of a woman caught my eye. Her name is María, she is from Málaga, she is an entrepreneur and has very clear ideas. One of her achievements has been creating a dance school with its own methodology: IZANSDANCE.

Many consider it a pioneering dance school in Andalusia.

CAMELIA RIOS: a new way of playing with architecture

In September of 2002, Camelia, our protagonist of today’s post, took one of the most important decisions of her life: emigrate to another country. Some years later, in 2012, she was presented with another important change in her life, this time in the workplace and much less traumatic than the first one, but which also meant that she had to get out of her comfort zone again: quit a job where she had been working for 11 years on her own and make the leap to the world of entrepreneurship, creating her own company. Today I have the pleasure to present you Camelia Ríos, a jewel of a person, whom I had the pleasure to meet last November of 2017.  (more…)

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?
