Eduemprén is a program for the creation of social enterprises, organized by La Salle Technova Barcelona and promoted by La Salle Cataluña and La Salle-URL, with the intention of preparing young entrepreneurs committed to their environment, so that they can propose innovative solutions to social challenges. About 1100 students of La Salle de Catalunya, divided into groups of 3 to 6 people, will develop a social business project during the academic year, where they will have the advice of the Technova team that will travel to the different centres to do an assessment personalized.
The closure of EduEmprén will be in June 2018 when the different groups will have to present their project with an explanatory poster and to a jury that will decide the winners of the different categories.
