Descripción
This paper defines and analyzes strategies to foster development in rural areas from an academic approach. It is based on a case study located in Sierra de Ávila, central Spain. Its main objectives are to design and implement a development programme aimed at entrepreneurs. One of the most important pillars of this program is based on its plan of capacity building and education for business, which form the basis of this study. The university?s group that is carrying out the field work has used for over 25 years participatory tools that permit involving the various actors of the area from the early planning stages. This methodological approach has allowed the development of an advanced planning model called "Working With People" that connects expert and experience knowledge in the territories where it is applied. Until recent time, the diagnosis of the territory and the design of the program?s strategy have been carried out. In order to ensure the sustainability and applicability of future entrepreneurial initiatives it is necessary to support and strengthen potential entrepreneurs through training activities and capacity building. In this context, this article aims to study the implementation strategy of these training and capacity building activities studied from an academic perspective.
