It is aimed at the students that are completing their degree or that are studying a master's degree. The objective is to offer complementary training to what they have already learned in their degree so that they can be applied in their TFG/TFM (Undergraduate Degree Final Project /Master's Degree Final Project) which will necessarily be on creating companies.

The students selected to participate in the EMPRÉN Programme will attend 5 sessions of 3 hours of duration given by Lanzadera, which complement the subjects of Entrepreneurship offered by the Universitat de València, and their business projects will be considered to enter Lanzadera’s pre-incubation programmes.

A maximum of 20 students per edition will be selected.  In addition, the group could be completed with people attending UVEmprén Club with a project or entrepreneurial concern.
