Awareness of the business spirit and the generation of the entrepreneurial culture are essential ingredients for promoting and boosting the generation of wealth in Bilbao.
With this objective, we deploy different lines of work aimed at generating an entrepreneurial culture, promoting entrepreneurship and innovation by creating favourable environments for individuals with potential as entrepreneurs:
