Ten Entrepreneurs Will Receive Support from the New Incubator at Universidad Europea

Ten entrepreneurs have been selected to participate in the HUB Emprende initiative (Entrepreneurship Hub) at Universidad Europea during the next five months. The new center, created at the university’s newest campus in Alcobendas, will seek to promote entrepreneurship among students and society at large.

This second group of entrepreneurs were selected by a jury composed of leading local entrepreneurs and representatives from the government of Alcobendas and from Universidad Europea. The students will receive specialized guidance and development opportunities focused on helping make their projects a success.

María Alcolea, the director of HUB Emprende, confirmed the selection process was difficult given the number of great projects. She indicated that the new class of entrepreneurs will be mentored by the first class of entrepreneurs. “During the month, 20 different entrepreneurs will complete development opportunities, and share ideas and contacts. We continue to grow the initative based on the experience we are gaining through the program,” she added.
