After this conversation the conference turned to a darker and worrying questions. Manuel and Students brought up the topic of the amount of human capital that will lose their jobs to technology. What solution do we have as human beings? Adapting as companies? As Darwin said: "It is not the strongest, nor the smarter the one who survives, but the one that adapts best to change". Innovation is unstoppable and without a doubt, the irruption of robotics and new technologies are going to completely change how we now live. But we mustn't think it is bad, the sooner we embrace this situation and start looking for the best way to adapt, the easier the transition will be! After some of the students who attended the conference had a question about how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur in Spain? Manuel Núñez answered that Spain has made a lot of progress regarding entrepreneurship, not only in the number of entrepreneurs but also in the quality of the projects. The crisis has become a trigger to make many people choose the path of setting up new businesses and thus leaving their comfort zone. Plus, some of the Spanish startups success stories have also helped boost entrepreneurship and generate a broader business ecosystem angels, venture capital companies, accelerators and venture builders. On the other hand, big brands have started to trust entrepreneurs, investing in those projects related to their sector with the goal of anticipating change and be closer to millennials! At last the question was asked on the role of education in that change of mindset? Or what is the main thing that could boost it? Easy! Education is a critical element to make adaptability to the change. In 10 years, a large part of the jobs we know today will cease to exist. That is why we should reconsider how the education model should be, so it allows new generations to live in an ever changing work environment. We are now facing the fourth industrial revolution. In the end of the XVII century it was the steam machine and this time it will be the autonomous systems and robots with IA the ones leading a radical transformation. We have to be prepared for the unimaginable and education is key in that transition!
