Support for entrepeneurs

In 2012 Ferrovial collaborated for the first time on the regional IBM SmartCamp in Spain. This initiative is part of IBM's Global Entrepreneur program, which aims to help start-ups and entrepreneurs to put into practice their projects and business ideas.

The winner in 2012 in Spain out of over 50 pre-selected candidates was PanamNav, a mobile solution that checks the geographical position of smartphone users to ensures secure payment transactions.

IBM SmartCamp provides participants with an opportunity to network and receive advice and support from venture capital businesses, local and international investors, industry executives and prestigious entrepreneurs.

In 2012, Ferrovial once more worked on the second "Pasion>ie, pasión por innovar y emprender" initiative that Accenture Spain and the IE Business School launched to create links between the "innovation community" and business in order to develop innovative projects that can contribute to economic and social development, within three categories: the city of the future; the health service of the future; and the retail distribution of the future.

After the initial selection, the 2nd Forum of Advisers of Pasion>ie will make a further selection of projects in order to choose the finalists. These will form part of a mentoring plan in which Ferrovial will take part. On May 8, 2013 the projects will be presented at the IE Business School's Investors' Day to investors from Spain and around the world.
