New training courses for entrepreneurs


Three workshops set up for project leaders and creators of innovative companies were held at the Izarbel site. The events were organised by ESTIA Entreprendre as part of the entrepreneurial programme set up by the Basque Country Urban Authority. The September agenda included workshops on strategy and business models, strategic marketing, and industrial property for innovative projects.

The short courses were organised by ESTIA Entreprendre, a department dedicated to the creation and development of young technology-based businesses, and were held at the Izarbel Technology Park site. They were jointly run by ESTIA Entreprendre and the Basque Country Urban Authority as part of a partnership which aims to support innovative companies in the Basque Country Technology Park.

The following courses were offered in September 2019:

  • Strategy and business models
