The Vice-Chancellor of Research and Knowledge Transfer, Juan Manuel Corchado, met with the CEO of the BNI Estrategia group, Manuel Martín, and the director of theMultidisciplinary Business Institute, Julio Pindado. The goal was to get to know the business group that meets once a week to generate business.

BNI Estrategia consists of a group of business people from Salamanca who meet once a week to exchange important contacts and to generate business. The idea is that the University of Salamanca and this Business group establish relations to create synergy for possible future collaborations. BNI Estrategia has companies in over 65 countries that “would facilitate the dissemination of the Eighth Centenary in 2018”, according to their CEO. Juan Manuel Corchado, for his part, was open to this kind of collaboration that “is the seed for the future of a business and new companies can benefit from the experience.”

The University and BNI Estrategia agreed to make agreements that benefit both parties as a way to access the business world and encourage entrepreneurship among students.
