With a view to promoting entrepreneurial culture and lending support to the creation and consolidation of companies and employment, via quality services, the University of Salamanca has defined its Entrepreneurship Plan for the 2015-2017 period. Focused on the creation of an “open knowledge ecosystem”, with this Plan the University of Salamanca aims to become an internationally referenced pole of entrepreneurship, attracting and establishing relations with all the agents necessary; i.e., entrepreneurs, startups, accelerators, incubators, mentors, investors, small-and medium-sized companies and the communications media.
To implement this plan, USAL has an Entrepreneurship Unit (which is dependent on the Vice-Chancellorship for Investigation and Results Transfer), which coordinates all the activities developed in the different programs integrated with the SIPPE, OTRI, the Science Park, the General Foundation , the Entrepreneurship Chairs and the Multidisciplinary Business Institute.
The entrepreneurship plan is directed towards entrepreneurs who wish to set u an entrepreneurial initiative, and also to companies that are already constituted but need support for expansion, modernization and consolidation in the market, thus encompassing the two main phases of entrepreneurial development (incubation and acceleration) as well as working on the dissemination of entrepreneurial culture within the University context.
The University of Salamanca and the Science Park will actively potentiate all activities aimed at supporting entrepreneurs and fostering the development of companies, via assessment, training and the management of spaces.
