USAL is committed to entrepreneurship and has created a plan to foster this. In this context, USAL has created an entrepreneurship unit linked to the Science Park in which an “open knowledge ecosystem” is being constructed, a hub of entrepreneurship with international outreach aiming to attract and set up relations with a broad variety of agents: entrepreneurs, start-ups, accelerators, incubators, mentors, investors, large and medium-sized companies and communications media. As a Third Generation Park, the SPS holds entrepreneurship as one of the lynchpins of its existence and differentiating characteristics ( viz.“singular” above). The SPS attempts to nurture all activities aiming at establishing fruitful relations among the various agents involved, thereby allowing a suitable environment to be generated in which new entrepreneurs can receive support and some of the more consolidated start-ups can be scaled-up.
