Málaga IA coworking program
The first edition of this entrepreneurship program is focused on the field of Artificial Intelligence application and will have capacity for 20 projects. It will be a coworking space as a result of the collaboration between EOI and the City of Malaga.
This initiative, which is free for all participants, will have a training phase at two levels: a plan of specific workshops to help entrepreneurs to develop and validate the business model with agile methodologies adapted to the industry, as well as to develop the essential skills to start it up; and another series of sessions in which specific subjects of the target field of action for the promotion and take-off of the projects of the coworking space will be worked on.
In addition, there will be 40 hours of individualized mentoring for each of the projects by experts to design the business model and its positioning in the national and international market, as well as a series of events aimed at promoting networking and sharing best practices and an Investors Day to attract investors.
