First global summit for Spanish startups and international investors

IE Business School, Infoempleo and FCP Financial Communication Platforms have joined forces to organize the Spain Startup & Investor Summit on June 6 – 8 in Madrid. The overriding objective of the initiative, unique to Spain, is to make Madrid the world capital of entrepreneurship.

“Now is the time to do this. The new scenario has to mirror the talents of the powerful society that makes up Spain: entrepreneurial, reliable and competitive,” said María Benjumea, President of the initiative, during the constitution of the Spain Startup & Investor Summit Advisory Board. The Board comprises key players in the field of entrepreneurship – entrepreneurs, business leaders and institutions – who play a pivotal role in the sector. “These are people with dynamism, enthusiasm and initiative. People who are convinced that 2012 marks the turning point and that it’s time to start looking ahead,” added the organizers.

Spain, the perfect market

The Spain Startup & Investor Summit Advisory Board is the academic team behind a project that aims to bring Spain back to the world stage with the innovation, creativity and passion that are the hallmark of Spanish entrepreneurs.  The pioneering project will serve as a meeting point for international investors and these entrepreneurs.
