The University of Salamanca has set initiatives to promote entrepreneurship in the university community.

The University of Salamanca finds itself on a list of twenty Spanish universities, which, according to the Educa 2020 de la Fundación Axa have majorly contributed and invested in entrepreneurship. We hope to continue on that path and achieve an even higher ranking.

For that reason, during the academic year 2016-2017 we will develop more than 100 activities aimed at involving college students in entrepreneurial culture. Our goal is to create direct employment through investment in entrepreneurial projects and to train students for the profile demanded by most companies. In order to do this, we will rely on the Chair of Entrepreneurs of Banco Santander and a number of spaces for entrepreneurship and training. As well as a series of projects on general, cultural and technological entrepreneurship.

For that matter, I would like to point out that the “USAL Emprende” program is destined to train and give advice on entrepreneurial projects which emerge from the university environment. Therefore, we will organize a series of activities as part of this program. They will take place on college campuses in Avila, Bejar, Salamanca and Zamora and in coordination with academic centers.

At the presentation of these initiatives I was accompanied by Emiliana Pizarro, Head of Professional Insertion Services, Practices and Employment (SIPPE).
