Introducing.... Laura Vanessa Munoz from Empowering Futures

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR VENTURE?
Empowering Future is a social enterprise that matches bright entrepreneurs with driven university students to collaborate on specific projects. Both get support and training to make the best out of the project and develop the skills the need to be successful in their careers. 

WHY DID YOU SET IT UP?
I'm passionate about connecting people and spreading good ideas and I have always done it at different levels and from different industries.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST THING YOU HAVE LEARNT ALONG THE WAY?
Collaboration makes us stronger as people, as organisations and as societies. Planning is great but entrepreneurs need to be flexible and adapt quickly to take advantage of opportunities. 

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE YOUR VENTURE NEXT?
I want to make Empowering Futures self sustainable in 12 months and by then I want to start growing a passionate team focused on delivering a high quality service for entrepreneurs and university students so they have the best changes to be successful.  

WHY DID YOU JOIN EDSPACE?
I love being part of a community, exchanging knowledge and ideas.

WHAT CAN YOU TEACH? (ANYTHING YOU ARE SKILLED AT OR PASSIONATE ABOUT)
I have a strong background in Public Relations, I have formulated and delivered strategies for international Tech Companies, Corporates, Associations, SMEs and Charities. I have secured publications at: BBC Breakfast, ITV News, Sky News, BBC Radio 4, Cosmopolitan, The Telegraph, Saga Magazine, The Guardian, The Huffington Post and many other publications in Latin America.
