From August to December 2013, we implemented a spin-off pre-incubation program together with the Entrepreneurship Center of San Andrés University (UdeSA). The program consisted of four projects: Visualis Integral (ICT), NanoDetección (nanotechnology), PhylumTech (biotechnology) and CITES-Ingeniería (Engineering).
The participants were 8 tech entrepreneurs invited by CITES as well as 5 professors, 16 postgraduate students and 4 graduate students invited by UdeSA. Through this program we improved business ideas and, after a final assessment, we were able to select the projects that will be incubated from 2014 in the new premises of CITES.
Therefore, by signing agreements with important educational institutions, we exchange knowledge and form multidisciplinary working teams, which add quality to the different projects carried out.
