THE DEPARTMENT of Economic Development of the City Council of Javea in collaboration with the agency AFIC-CREAMA launched their new initiative promoting networking between entrepreneurs in Javea last week.
The first ‘Beers and Bytes’ networking (or rather, ‘beachworking’ as the initiative has been fondly referred to) session was held last Wednesday at the Duplex Café Lounge on Calle Pescadors, Javea and brought together a group of entrepreneurs all with a desire to make contacts and share experiences and advice.
Francesc Camprubi Martell, Head of the Department of Economic Development was responsible for breaking the ice – presenting the initiative and the concept of ‘beachworking’ – promoting Javea’s unique offering of quality of life along with professional development opportunities, great for those for want to develop professionally without forfeiting the relaxed characteristic that comes with living in a Meditteranean town.
Attendees at the session enjoyed presentations from three local Javea entrepreneurs who work in different sectors such as wine distribution (Casa del Vino), child care (Bombonets) and design (Deporte y Color).
After the presentations, attendees enjoyed networking with other entrepreneurs and finding out more about the support resources available to them in Javea.
Camprubi was encouraged by the promising start for Beers and Bytes, as many attendees reported a positive experience, promising to encourage other entrepreneurs to attend the next session.
The monthly sessions are open to all current or future entrepeneurs and will develop throughout the year.
The next session will be held on Wednesday April 26 along the Arenal, yet to be confirmed but most likely at La Terraza Achill.
