Entrepreneurship

FPdGi chair of young entrepreneurs at the University of Girona

This Chair aims to help nurture talent, promote leadership and provide training and opportunities for future entrepreneurs by organising various activities and programmes related with entrepreneurship and setting up businesses

Since May 2015, the FPdGi has been supporting the FPdGi Chair of Young Entrepreneurs at the University of Girona (UdG) to promote entrepreneurial culture.

The Chair of Young Entrepreneurs was set up in 2009 with the aim of fostering entrepreneurial spirit and vocations, supporting entrepreneurial initiatives and generating new business projects in the province of Girona. After its initial years of activity, the Univesrsity of Girona and the Princess of Girona Foundation agreed to give new impetus to the Chair in order to encourage entrepreneurial attitudes, support all young university students, nurture talent, promote leadership and provide training and opportunities for future entrepreneurs by organising various activities and programmes related with entrepreneurship and setting up businesses.

The UdG and the FPdGi want to pool their background and experience in the area of fostering entrepreneurial spirit and mentoring young people to help them explore their entrepreneurial capability, and provide them with the necessary tools and resources.

The activities being offered are designed to complement the efforts made by both institutions and provide a link with Girona’s business sector, allowing young university students to gain first-hand knowledge of their immediate environment.

The priority actions of the FPdGi Chair of Young Entrepreneurs at the University of Girona for 2016 are as follows:

  • 2nd edition of StartUp Weekend Girona.
  • Central event in Girona in spring.
  • Financial support for the best final project in the Master’s in Entrepreneurship at the University of Girona.
  • Activities to promote entrepreneurship with faculties and departments at the university: Polytechnic college, ERAM college (communication, art, audiovisuals, multimedia and design), etc.
