Edufinet, the financial education project promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, launches new website for Edufiemp, its portal for business owners and entrepreneurs, with the goal of offering a more accessible and intuitive site.
The launch of this new website coincides with the tenth anniversary of Edufiemp. The new design features a renewed image and includes a wide range of contents, such as information on the legal form of companies, financial system, phases of business activity, viability of a business project, financial products, taxes, business-bank relations, economic indicators and financial calculations, as well as a section on the specific topics related to the agricultural sector.
Edufiemp was launched on June 2011 by Unicaja, together with the Malaga Confederation of Business Owners (Confederación de Empresarios de Málaga, CEM), as a pioneering portal in Spain to offer financial education for business owners and entrepreneurs.
More specifically, Edufiemp wants to provide business owners and entrepreneurs with an overall perspective on the key topics of the Spanish financial system and of the main products and services they can have access to, thus helping them to make the financial decisions that are most appropriate for the daily running of their companies.
The financial education portal for businesses is hosted in that of the Edufinet Project (www.edufinet.com/), with access from the link available there. Additionally, there is a direct access to Edufiemp: https://edufiemp.edufinet.com/.
