The Universitat de València announces the UVentrepreneurship StartUP programme

UVentrepreneurship StartUP is a programme designed to boost the entrepreneurial capacity of students. It is based on the results of institutional entrepreneurship programmes at the Universitat de València and is open to undergraduate, postgraduate and master's students and alumniUV who have participated in a UVentrepreneurship programme and who have developed a business idea during their studies that they would like to promote.


UVentrepreneurship StartUP has a dual objective:

  • Work spaces located on the Tarongers campus where entrepreneurial projects can be developed under the supervision of the programme's academic coordination team, as well as mentoring and personalised advice.
  • Access to training programmes and technical seminars according to the training needs identified.
