Unicaja Banco reinforces its support to entrepreneurship as an economic driver in Andalusia by participating one more year as partner in the Entrepreneur’s Day (Día de la Persona Emprendedora en Andalucía), whose twelfth edition has been held today in Circuito de Jerez-Ángel Nieto in Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz).

 

Organized by the Department of Knowledge, Research and Universities (Consejería de Conocimiento, Investigación y Universidad) of the Government of Andalusia, through Fundación Andalucía Emprende, this Day is regarded as the main event on entrepreneurship in Andalusia. This year, it has focused on subjects such as energy efficiency and innovation applied to the environment, Big Data, digital transformation in SMEs, internationalization or women’s entrepreneurship.

 

 The event has hosted again the award ceremony of the V Andalucía Emprende Prizes, where Unicaja Banco has participated. The following companies have been awarded as the best companies of Andalusia 2018: ‘Lesielle’, from Jerez and dedicated to adaptive skin-care, in the category ‘CREA’; and ‘Voss Flamenco’, from Almeria, dedicated to the customized design and sale of flamenco dresses, in the category ‘CONSOLIDA’. Special prizes have been awarded to the city of Torremolinos (Málaga) and to the CADE (Business Support Center) of Sevilla-Estrategias as recognition to their promotion of entrepreneurship.

 

Unicaja Banco’s Head of Business Banking, Salvador Navarro, has been a member of the jury of this edition of the Andalucía Emprende Prizes. These prizes award the most innovative and with the highest development potential business projects developed in the CADEs. The winners have been chosen from among the 16 finalist initiatives of each category which were selected during the provincial phases held in each province of Andalusia.

 

Unicaja Banco has also participated in one of the nine corners set up to give advice to entrepreneurs. In particular, it has participated in the area of financing rounds, where the Bank has given information on its main financing products on exclusive conditions for entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals with a viable business project.
