Why Barcelona is Good for Startups
Looking to start a company, but not sure where to locate yourself? Barcelona is the place to be for startups. Let’s take a closer look and see why!
Barcelona is full of coworking spaces. Coworking is a rising trend in which people from different companies and backgrounds work in the same physical location. Not only are WIFI, a desk, basic office supplies, and usually some snacks provided – the environment is great for collaboration and working together. Joining a coworking space is a perfect way to kick off your startup!
It’s an amazing city!
This is an under appreciated, but vitally important, aspect to having a successful startup. You need to attract the best talent from near and far. No matter how attractive the job or salary is, people have to live in the place they work. Barcelona’s many attractions – from beautiful beaches to great bars and restaurants to history and museums – are unparalleled.
Barcelona is a huge tech hub. There are many technology conferences here, but the main one is Mobile World Congress. This is a great way for startups to get on the map and learn more about the tech world, as well as connect with others. Also at Mobile World Congress is 4YFN (Four Years From Now), a platform dedicated to connecting startups. This is a can’t miss opportunity!
