My trip to Entrepreneurship
What is all this?
I need your help to cover the cost of the trip to TrepCamp 2019.
This life-changing experience is a 3-Week programthat would give me the possibility to immerse myself in one of the most important entrepreneurial ecosystemsin the world in order to my potential as a high-impact entrepreneur.
During my visit, I will be able to develop my own business project; to present it to a panel of experts; to visit the most emblematic entrepreneurial organizations such as incubators, accelerators, labs or innovation centers; and to attend to talks with leaders, innovators, successful entrepreneurs or investors.
My goal is to transform my summer into a meaningful experience and in the end return with a clear mind to help develop passion-driven business ideas.
Who I am:
I am from the small city of Castellon in Valencian Community, Spain, and I grew up with my mom, dad, and three little brothers. I am currently a junior attending ESADE Business & Law School. Three years ago, my University awarded me a Talent Scholarship(based on financial need and academic records), which gave me the opportunity to study at one of the best Business Schools in Spain, based in Barcelona.
Throughout the last three years, I have confirmed my passion for Entrepreneurship, and I have tried to make the most of the opportunity I have been given. I am heavily involved with my studies and I am actively participating in several student projects including a service to get micro-credits for entrepreneurs without financial resources, the lead of the cultural society (where we spread the culture throughout the campus), and the university team that will participate in the 2019 Jessup Law Moot Court Competition. I also work part-time as a Research Assistant at the General Management and Strategy Department, and do pro bono consulting (in the area of marketing) for a local NGO that works towards the social and labor insertion of people with difficulties.
My work with these projects has shown me the value of volunteeringand having an entrepreneurial mindset in the service of others.
Why I Need Your Help:
My dream: to develop the mindsets and skills needed to become a high impact entrepreneur. I hope that this helps me towards creating a start-up that makes a positive impact on society.
As previously stated, I'm a college student. I am blessed being able to attend my Business School, but there isn't much room for life-changing experiences like this. Therefore, I need your help to make this happen.
