President Juan said that Formentera Impulsa was making the Espai Empresarial available to local entrepreneurs and described it as "a tool to help them develop their activity, boost capacity building and create a space to share experiences and synergies with others". Juan pointed out that the objective of this initiative is "to support people lacking a space to start administrative work and all those who need training, guidance and advice when creating their own company". To that end, she encouraged the Espai Empresarial's first two users, Marcelo Guisado Saceda and Mariam Ben Hamza Shaim Abja, "to take advantage of all the resources that Formentera Impulsa offers entrepreneurs".
