"The relationship between Tecnun and Bic Gipuzkoa has always been marked by support and learning, but, above all, it is based on the application of our knowledge to the business initiatives generated by the researchers, professors and students of campus of Ibaeta".
The director of the School of Engineering, Raúl Antón, wanted to thank BIC Gipuzkoa for its support and highlighted "the high percentage of successful entrepreneurial projects incubated by alumni of Tecnun thanks, for the most part, to the support of Bic". "We are convinced that continuing to train new generations in the field of entrepreneurship will have a positive impact on society as a whole."
The Chair, which will be led at Tecnun by the University's Entrepreneurship director , Gustavo Pegowill allow "to continue advancing in aspects for which both institutions have been betting for some time", such as training, awareness and knowledge dissemination of entrepreneurship, as emphasized by the new agreement.

Entrepreneurs need support and we are going to give it to them with entrepreneurs who have already walked this path", Gustavo Pego points out.
