Entrepreneurship is an important part of the economy of any place; therefore, promoting it is as important in the city of Seville as in any other, but even more in a place where the connection between science and technology with the business sector is a priority objective.
The PCT Cartuja Invierte Program continuously trains and advises the park's entrepreneurs on how to present their projects to investors and thus obtain financing. With this objective several editions of the Forum of Investors of the PCT Cartuja have already been celebrated, where several companies had the opportunity to present their projects to local investors.
Facilities that foster entrepreneurship in the PCT Cartuja
The Tecnoincubadora Marie Curie plays an important role in supporting entrepreneurship through its El Cubo Andalucía Open Future space.
This startup incubator space was born in 2010 to become a center for business development by supporting the creation and consolidation of innovative companies oriented to the national and international market.
Being part of this space means entering into an ideal environment for technological entrepreneurs, where they will find other companies with which to create synergies, and a fully accessible management team that continuously monitors the housed companies. All this in facilities equipped with the latest technologies to respond to all the needs of entrepreneurs.
The PCT Cartuja technoincubator offers functional physical spaces, financial advice, technical advice, training and technological development, as well as advanced business services.
Since its creation, close to 90 companies have passed through this building, and every year new startups are added to accelerate their growth in this center.
El Cubo is part of the Andalucía Open Future centers, a program promoted by the Junta de Andalucía and Telefónica where the initiatives that make up the entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem based on technology in our region are integrated.
In the case of the center located in our Park, it is a crowdworking center where the aim is to raise the impact of projects to their maximum potential by making them more global, competitive and with more attractive and solid solutions for investors. Designed for entrepreneurs with innovative ideas.
Other initiatives to support entrepreneurship in the PCT Cartuja
The Programa Minerva is an entrepreneurship program promoted by the Junta de Andalucía and Vodafone to promote business projects in the technology sector in Andalusia, to turn ideas into stable businesses.
The EOI coworking space is aimed at entrepreneurs with a business project at an early stage of development, or with less than 6 months of experience; they are provided with mentoring, group training sessions and free workshops; It is a program co-financed by the European Social Fund, the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism and the Collaborating Entity.
The Confederación de Empresarios de Andalucía (CEA) also makes available to the Seville entrepreneurs numerous activities and resources so that their projects reach a good port; we highlight its CEA + empresas program, which offers free seminars on topics such as marketing, accounting and financing.
And what better way to expand your entrepreneurial vision than traveling? With the Erasmus Program for Entrepreneurs of the PCT Cartuja it is very simple; We have already contributed to 120 international exchanges, where close collaborations have been created between emerging and consolidated companies from different European countries.
The creation of new companies is a fundamental pillar of the business development of any area, and that is why in the PCT Cartuja we contribute actively to have a rich, dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem, with future prospects. A value that will be very appreciated by the visitors of the Congress of the IASP association, if the PCT Cartuja is the selected candidacy.
