At BBK we are working to boost growth in our province by providing complementary support for the education system and science and with projects that have a social impact on employment and entrepreneurship.
As far as entrepreneurship is concerned, we want to play the leading role in the creation of a social entrepreneurship and investment eco-system that makes an impact based on sustainable development goals. We understand support for entrepreneurship to be a process in which four well defined steps take shape, and in which BBK has aimed to include different projects in each one of these stages that we have identified. A first phase based on inspiration, with a collaborative community. A second one, in which we create the conditions to provide a business model for the ideas that encourage social change. A third one, in which we boost companies and social projects with development potential, both in Bizkaia and internationally. And a final one in which we favour the securing of economic resources and we provide support for established companies with a high degree of social impact and scalability.
Right from the beginning we have also supported talent and employment with numerous grants with which we aim to encourage labour-market integration or professional specialization through vocational training and we have supported the research system in Bizkaia.
