Multiplier Event

Date: February 27th, 2017

Place: Impact Hub, Madrid

A multiplier event is an event that serves to promote a project and disseminate its results.

We are from Arenas de San Pedro, a small town in the Tiétar Valley, but we decided to organise our multiplier event in Madrid, because this way we could reach many more people interested in the methodology we have created.

Fundación Puentes Global helped us to organise it and used its contacts to invite the most appropriate people in the biggest possible number 🙂 Thank you Puentes Global! Thank you Ana and Javier!

Among the participants, there were university students, secondary and high school teachers, representatives of different non-governmental organisations that work in the field of youth entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship in general, and of course representatives of the Economy for the Common Good Spain.

At the beginning we asked three of our guests to say a word about their experiences and reflections about entrepreneurship among young people today and about the Economy for the Common Good:

– Conchita Galdón – president of Puentes Global Foundation. Director of the Social Innovation  of Instituto de Empresa and a profesor of Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation  in the IE.

– Javier Sánchez – from Recruitery Jobs and ex-president of StartUC3M.

– Pedro Olazábal – from Ariteia Empresas Conscientes and an expert in the Economy for the Common Good.

Later we presented the Project and its outcomes, answered some questions about it and had a short debate about the needs in the entrepreneurial education.

At the end of the event we implemented one of the educational sessions for the people who wanted to know a bit more about our methodology.

Thanks everyone for coming and hope you will find our manual useful and enjoy using it.
