The Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) is promoting 13 entrepreneurial projects that make up the new edition of the Explorer UC3M Space, a youth entrepreneurship programme sponsored by Banco Santander through Santander Universities.
Each project has until June to develop their ideas collaboratively and receive personalised advice and training about innovation and business models.
At the end of the training period, those responsible for the best project will travel to the European Innovation Academy (Lisbon), where they will receive training and advice, and have contact with investment companies from different places around the world, Silicon Valley, among others.
One of the most important pieces of information about this edition of the programme is the percentage of women who are participating in Explorer UC3M Space, 54% of the total number of participants, the highest number of women that have ever participated in the programme.
