The  General Foundation of the University of Salamanca  and  USAL Emprende (SIPPE), as part of activities of the TCUE (University-Business Knowledge Transfer) Plan for 2015-2017, Phase 2 (framed within the University-Business Knowledge Transfer Plan for 2015-2017 of Castile & Leon’s Regional Ministry of Education) have organized a workshop to teach entrepreneurs, business professionals, and students with an enterprising spirit  to design an elevator pitch.


This concerns learning to write a presentation speech about a project or venture for potential clients or shareholders using clear, concise and synthetic ideas for making investment decisions. Knowing how to effectively transmit business ideas to prospective and ever more demanding investors can provide the opportunity to create our own business, maintain or improve our positioning as professionals with credibility, and also to attract new projects, agreements, collaborations, or other personal objectives. This involves knowing and using suitable messages, resources and channels according to different interlocutors.


17/3/2017: 9:00 – 14:00

24/3/2017: 9:00 – 14:00


Both session will be held in the “aula de emprendedores,” located in the Entrepreneurs HUB, Hospedería Fonseca, Calle Fonseca 2. 37007, Salamanca.
