New Entrepreneur Angelo Bonsignore is a lawyer who 2 years ago started his law firm in Agrigento (Sicily) that provides legal services in the field of civil law and in some areas of commercial, criminal law and Sports. Angelo decided to participate in Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme as he wanted to:

  • acquire new skills,
  • learn a different work style,
  • apprehend innovative marketing strategies,
  • expand his contacts,
  • learn from the HE how to run the business successfully.

Angelo found the host entrepreneur Sixto Suàrez Marrero of Actividades Profesionales TECSO, S.L. – a law studio based in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and spent 3 months at the studio of the host entrepreneur.

Angelo was involved in series of activities that will help him in the future to improve and expand his business.

I have carried out several activities: the most strictly legal ones such as reading legal acts, activities at the Court, and finally studying and learning a method of personnel management developed by the host entrepreneur. Exchange has certainly brought me new knowledge, learning new work techniques, new concepts and content.

As for the host entrepreneur Sixto, the experience of EYE programme allowed him to share his knowledge and experience, and establish international relationships. Sixto highlighted that

International relationships is the base of the reception: opening up frontiers of business between different countries. Therefore, the idea is to deal with these new trends of business and transfer them to other countries – in this case to Italy.

 Angelo is very positive about his experience:

Participation in the program was certainly positive, a good experience in the career path of professional and human growth, where I was able to learn new ways of working, knowing new ways of doing, new culture, improving the language.
