A group of 60 people, students of the Faculty of Economics and representatives from the Castilla y Leon Family Business Forum (Fórum de la Empresa Familiar de Castilla y León, EFCyL), have received information on the main topics related to setting a business.

 

This is another initiative of the Edufinet Project on Financial Education in the region of Castilla y Leon, which include, among other actions, lectures for different audiences and publishing.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has organized a lecture at the University of Valladolid called ‘Decision-making for entrepreneurship’. The talk, given by José María López, Head of CSR at Unicaja Banco, was addressed to an audience of 60 people, composed by students of Market Research and Techniques at the Faculty of Economics and by representatives from the Castilla y Leon Family Business Forum.

 

The lecture has provided the attendees with remarks on entrepreneurship and the criteria to choose the legal form of the company, as well as other topical issues. In his speech, José María López has also made reference to the procedures to create a sociedad anónima or limitada and to the preparation of the Corporate Bylaws. Emphasis has been placed on the funding for the project, and on the Spanish Law on support to entrepreneurs and internationalization (Ley de Apoyo a los Emprendedores y el Apoyo a la Internacionalización).

 

This is one of the training activities developed by Unicaja through the Edufinet Project. This time, the bank has addressed, focusing on entrepreneurship, to students of Economics, contributing as well to the training activities carried out periodically by the Castilla y Leon Family Business Forum, as per that established in the agreement entered into between Unicaja Banco and the said Forum.

 

Training activity of the Family Business Forum

 

Composed by nearly one hundred members from 18 to 35 years old, the activities of the Family Forum intend to provide guidance and information to the youth member of family businesses in Castilla y Leon who shall have managerial responsibilities or shall own the businesses member of EFCL.

 

Castilla y Leon Family Business Forum was established in September 2000 by EFCL, upon the concern of family business owners about the need for their successors to acquire specific training on the features of these companies, so as to facilitate their continuity and to raise awareness on the importance of their role in generational transition.
