  • One year working in what I love

    Choose a job you like and you won't have to work a single day of your life Confucius I had decided to change jobs long before. Besides the fact that a person whose name I don't want to remember had been harassing me in my job for a year and a half, specifically since an undisputed professional success that...

  • StartupSpain VI. A spark in the ecosystem

    In this post I want to show, in broad strokes, what is our drawing of StartupSpain. A project with the body of a startup to help startups and that we hope to begin to materialize throughout the fall. The era of big public spending is over. Institutions and governments have to be cut back in order to reduce the...

  • StartupSpain V. The first conclusions

    In early spring 2011, the first conclusions about what the Spanish startup ecosystem was and what it needed came to light. After evaluating the existing actions, it became clear that not only were they not lacking, but that there was a surplus of actions by public institutions for entrepreneurs. The Ministry of Industry has identified, between public and private institutions,...

  • StartupSpain IV. This is how it all started

    In the summer of 2010 we had just won our first soccer World Cup. It was there, almost two years ago, when Chile surprised us all with the announcement of Startup Chile. It was a real audacity but it was full of good vibes and common sense. It became the talk of the events of that time, and shortly after...

Another point in our favor is the high level of training of young people, since most of them have a high level of...

  • StartupSpain II. Precursors

    Startup support ecosystems date back to the middle of the last century, although at that time there was no such word as startups. It all started in 1950, when Stanford University decided to create its Industrial Park, which consisted of a series of small, low-rent buildings intended to support startups...

  • StartupSpain I. Definitions

    A year and a half ago we started talking about StartupSpain. Initially it was just a hypothesis, but it ended up becoming a truism, to the point that in April 2011 it was already clear that whoever it was, someone would end up launching this National Support System for startups. First of all, we must be clear that a...

  • I close my time at EOI

    Last February 29th was my last day at EOI, I leave behind more than a thousand days of experiences, friends and some of the best projects I have done, such as Open Green at SIMO 2010. I have thrown myself into projects that I enjoyed. We started by creating a relationship infrastructure for...

  • Teaching entrepreneurship

    1. What? The I Iniciador kids Camp held in August 2011 in Rada-Cantabria has been a laboratory of education, an exciting experience that I think I should share from the point of view of teaching methodology. I am aware that this is not a blog for secondary school teachers, but I feel the need to share my experience...
