Spanish Students from Mondragon Team Academy @ Urban Mill: WE WANT YOU TO MEET US!

This previous week just two young startups came to our Hub: Neemboo and 840 projects.

35 Spanish students from Mondragon Team Academy (MTA) are forming on the degree of Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Innovation (LEINN). The students have their home base in Urban Mill in Espoo Innovation Garden during the weeks in Finland.

As part of their degree, they will be spending a month and a half in Finland, learning about the Finnish market and economy in order to create a bridge between both countries and have a social impact. As well as, in order to learn more about its educational methodology, innovation processes and entrepreneurship.

For them to join our lovely community with a good step, they have decided to prepare an event for them to present us their learnings, by doing different projects they have and are working on since September. This Event will be taking place on Friday 23rd February at Urban Mill from 13:00 to 15:00 that will include a Spanish Food tasting for all the people that attend it.
