Iberdrola and the University of Salamanca are looking for future entrepreneurs in the energy sector
Emprende Salamanca (Entrepreneurship in Salamanca) is a joint initiative from Iberdrola and the University of Salamanca (USAL) to train students and encourage them to participate in entrepreneurial activities, as part of the development of future energy companies.
The Emprende Salamanca initiative aims to promote specialised training for students and arouse their interest in entrepreneurship in initiatives that address the challenges presented by the Utility of the Future.
STARTUP OLÉ 2018
Iberdrola, within the framework of the fourth Startup Olé, demonstrated its commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation in Salamanca and it reaffirmed its commitment to the digital transformation and sustainability in an event with entrepreneurs and investors from all over Europe.
The company participated in different round tables, workshops and accelerator programs for small and medium enterprises, and rolled out a series of innovative actions in order to highlight, in a fun and attractive way, its support for a technology entrepreneurship ecosystem.
In addition to having a stand, which exhibited Iberdrola's activities with start-ups through the PERSEO program and its efforts to promote entrepreneurship through its Young Entrepreneurs initiative, Iberdrola created a space with a virtual reality wind turbine and two electric cars with charging points, as a reflect its commitment to clean energy and mobility.
Thanks to Iberdrola, attendees enjoyed the exhibition of some electrical mobility options: bicycles, the smart go monster, easy go, scoot Z5 and airwheel hoverboards and scooters; plus two humanoid robots.
Iberdrola is thus reaffirming its commitment to the University of Salamanca through the Eighth Centenary Chair, in which it actively collaborates to promote University-Industry technology transfer, working in a close partnership to launch R&D projects and training initiatives in common areas of interest.
