The Venture project has had as main objective the promotion of the employment and self-employment of the students of diverse degrees corresponding to social sciences because the statistics show us the difficulties to undertake and self-employment of the students graduated of these races. Students of Law, Labor Relations, Economics, Finance and Accounting and Management and Business Administration have worked during 7 months in their training as future professionals solving real assumptions and designing business projects. The role of the Attorney Professional Associations and Social Graduates has been crucial for the motivation in the practice of the profession. In real cases legal issues have been addressed affecting various municipalities of the province of Malaga: Colmenar, Casabermeja, Frigiliana, Casares, Faraján, Benahavis and Villanueva de Algaidas. At the same time, requests from several NGOs in Málaga have been taken care of: Malagueños de la Noche, Andalucía Tech, CD Puerta Oscura, Mangas Verdes Association, Don’t Stop Me, Arrabal, Nayade, Association of Companies of Social Insertion of Malaga , Homeless People Group, Kapaces and the Association of Creators and Craftsmen carrying out various studies on the demand of the students to solve some problems. More than 30 situations examined, with different complexity, have allowed the participants to take cognizance of real problems that affect the public sector and the third sector, trying to focus self-employment towards innovative situations. Therefore, the final cross-cutting work involved the proposal of innovative entrepreneurial activity, which was exposed and judged by a Court composed of experts in the field, who, in all cases, praised the magnificent work of the competitor. The training in social innovation by Arrabal and the Chair of Entrepreneurship has ended this exciting project.
The social projection of this activity that is now closed has been important, we believe: in addition to the involvement with numerous town halls and associations, there have been “Open doors” days for social entrepreneurship with Days in which they have directly participated more than 300 people (in the Faculties of Social Studies and of the Work, in the Schools of Engineering and Philosophy and Letters).
Finally, as good news, almost 40% of the participants are currently employed, although many with ideas to carry out innovative projects on their own.
