The development of new lines of business, products and services from companies is an important source of growth and generator of wealth in organizations, and therefore, of the productive fabric.

Conscious of this opportunity, the promotion and drive of interentrepreneurship is one of the strategic priorities defined in the “Institutional Plan of Support for Entrepreneurial Activity,” led by the Department of Economic Development and Competition of the Basque Government, in collaboration with the Regional Councils.

This drive is materialized in an ambitious Initiative which is aimed at training and support to companies that want to explore this path of transformation as a strategic vector in their respective business environments. The Inititiative is aimed mainly at industrial companies with more than 50 employees, or those that have a high potential to create wealth and employment.

The Initiative to Boost Intraentrepreneurship unfolds through the SPRI group and the BICs (Business Innovation Centres) of the three TTHH, with the support of the major groups, patrons, Chambers of Commerce and other related representatives.


Facilitate and accelerate the creation of new businesses from organizations (companies) to increase, quantitatively and qualitatively, the implementation of new competitive and sustainable business initiatives.

Enable our business fabric to incorporate, as a distinguishing strength, generation of entrepreneurial activity from within companies, as a unique support to the economic growth and competitiveness of our economy.

Provide a framework of expert support and referrals from successful Basque trailblazing companies.


Throughout the months during which the initiative is developed, events are provided for training companies and customised managerial training for the development of concrete projects.


Sessions on various topics related to intraentrepreneurship and given by experts on the subject. One can expect academic experts, specialized consultants and business executives, who can present their experiences with real examples.

Intraentrepreneurship, talent engine and business innovation.
