Bienvenidos a Barcelona

With its history, Barcelona is a proven hotspot for artistic and creative minds. From the awe-inspiring architecture to the fabulous food, the startup scene here is flourishing, attracting young entrepreneurs from around the world looking for collaboration with like-minded souls. Although the city is playing catch up with Europe’s major hubs concerning the startup ecosystem, the pace of acceleration has been phenomenal.

Barcelona was one of our most popular locations in 2016 and 2017 and without a doubt it will be again this year. The first EIT Alumni Startup days of 2018 will take place at our wonderful partner location - Apocapoc BCN.
