Pedro Alvarez, from Chocolates Pancracio, and Enrique Briehl, from LEC Ilumina, gave a talk yesterday at the Heracles building in the Zona Franca interior in which they explained their respective experiences in the field of entrepreneurship, serving as an example and case study for those interested in accessing Incubazul, the blue economy incubator of the Cádiz Free Trade Zone, within the framework of a series of actions to stimulate and capture projects and ideas interested in becoming a company and consolidating.

The Free Zone delegate, Fran González, was in charge of opening the day and encouraged anyone who has an idea or project to use the tool they have with Incubazul. Then he gave way to both businessmen, who explained to the attendees the evolution of their companies and their experience in international markets, creating a lively final debate with the public.

At the moment the Consortium, which has the support of Telefónica, has already held two Open Days, which have put potential incubators in contact with the mentors who are part of the incubator's ecosystem, as well as a meeting with the University of Cádiz to bring Incubazul closer to the university community.
