We believe Barcelona has great potential as a seedbed and incubator for new global enterprises.
The competitive entrepreneurial ecosystem that has grown up in Barcelona in the recent years has reached a critical point where one of two scenarios can happen: either (1) the ecosystem evolves into a global hub, with the necessary critical mass of entrepreneurs, investors, talent and knowledge to become a stable source of employment and opportunities for the city; or (2) the looming challenges remain unresolved and Barcelona misses a great opportunity to join the global league of entrepreneurship hubs. Fortunately, there are grounds for optimism, including the many entrepreneurial and investment success stories to date, the development of Pier01, the role of Barcelona Tech City and the entrepreneurial sensitivity of Barcelona Activa and ACCIÓ (Agency for Business Competitiveness). We must build on them.
Mission: To place Barcelona as a global entrepreneurship hub.
Objective of Barcelona Global: To set an agenda and prioritise actions and projects to make Barcelona a leading global destination for entrepreneurship, while supporting the existing ecosystem.
