FACE Entrepreneurship has been present at the StartUp Olé Event which took place in Salamanca from the 9th to 11th of September. Within the framework of this event, supported by the University of Salamanca, Welcome, StartUp Europe and the European Commission, a great number of entrepreneurs, investors, startups, representatives of different EU-projects and institutions involved in the field of technology and ICT entrepreneurship came together in the city’s conference center. The aim was to provide a meeting point for these members of the European entrepreneurship ecosystem.
FACE Entrepreneurship is a European project whose main objective is to encourage ICT-entrepreneurship amongst young Europeans through a communication campaign that helps overwhelming the barriers of the fear of failure.
Elisa Piñeiro, International Communications Manager of Grupo Secuoya held a presentation of FACE Entrepreneurship for the people registered in the event.
Furthermore, FACE Entrepreneurship presented a panel session entitled “Failure as a stepping stone to success” that was highly appreciated by a participative public. The representatives of the European projects LIFE and WeHubs (Karen Boers, @karenboers and Maria Beatrice Giovanardi), and the collaborators of FACEEntrepreneurship (Vanessa Carrera, @VanessaCarreraA and Antonio Tena, @Atenablz) put forward their points of view with regard to failure in the career of every entrepreneur.
Outcome of FACE Entrepreneurship in StartUp Olé
The StartUp Olé served as a prelude for the FACE Entrepreneurship Project official launch that will take place on the 7th October in Madrid at the South Summit’15 Event.
The outcome of the participation in the event was very positive since both activities were well-appreciated by the public. On the one hand our projectcould be presented and introduced to the public, on the other handfirst contacts with entrepreneurs and institutions who work in favor of ICT-entrepreneurship in Europe could be established.
The success of the event induced the organizationto the announcement of a following edition of StartUp Olé in 2016 which will take place in Salamanca between the 7th and the 9th of September.
