Start-Up-Spain IX: October 23, 2014

As part of this forum, the Chile-Spain Foundation, the Rafael del Pino Foundation and ESADE are organising a gathering entitled “Start Up Chile: A Global Leader in Entrepreneurship”.        
At this session, we examined the Chilean model and compared it to that of Spain. By engaging in dialogue, we enabled both countries to learn from the other’s ecosystem of start-ups, innovation and venture capital. We posed two questions to the panellists: Do you think your country has any clear advantages or disadvantages when it comes to entrepreneurship and investment? What changes should be made to the entrepreneurial ecosystem to make it more effective?

Start-Up-Spain VIII: April 23, 2014

At this session, inspired by TEDxBinnenhof 2014 held in The Hague, the Dutch model was examined and compared to that of Spain. By engaging in dialogue we enabled both countries to learn from each other’s ecosystems of start-ups, innovation and venture capital. We asked two questions to the panellists: Do you think your country has any clear advantages or disadvantages when it comes to entrepreneurship and investment? What changes should be made to the entrepreneurial ecosystem to make it more effective?

Start-Up-Spain VII: December 12, 2013

This seventh edition of Start-Up Spain featured the participation of foreign entrepreneurs who have founded successful start-ups in Spain as well as Spanish entrepreneurs who have founded start-ups with the help of executives from Spanish multinationals. We posed three questions to the panellists: Why did you decide to create or invest in a start-up in Spain? How do you support innovation and the creation of new start-ups? What lessons can we learn that may help more initiatives of this type to spread in Spain?

Start-Up-Spain VI: July 11, 2013

In this sixth edition of Start Up Spain we bring together managers and executives from Spanish and foreign multinationals that actively promote the entrepreneurial ecosystem in our country through awards, collaborations, training and financing. We put three questions to them: How do they support innovation and the creation of start-ups? What lessons can be learned from Spain and be used to diffuse more initiatives of this kind throughout our country? What role do these initiatives play in times of crisis? 

Start Up Spain VI

Start-Up-Spain V: April 18, 2013

Haute cuisine and leisure have become two of the hallmarks of Spain. Accordingly, the first round table debate in the fifth edition of Start Up Spain was comprised of Spanish chefs whose culinary creations are the perfect synthesis of tradition and innovation. We also were joined by corporate executives from the leisure and tourism sector who have successfully reinvented our country’s main industry. And we were putting two questions to them: What led them to innovate and how can we develop this trend in Spain? Does innovation lie behind their companies’ recent successes?

 

We will also werer joined, in a second session, by renowned professionals who have demonstrated their commitment to innovation, new technologies and entrepreneurship, along with entrepreneurs and investors who have developed start-ups based on university spin-offs. We also put two questions to them: Is education geared towards entrepreneurship in Spain? What can we do to promote a denser public-private investor ecosystem around these initiatives?

Start Up Spain V

Start-Up-Spain IV: December 17, 2012

In response to requests made at previous editions, Start-Up Spain brought together women who have decided to forge ahead with their own start-ups. Two questions were put to those attending this event: What difficulties have women had to overcome and what advantages does being a woman involve for female entrepreneurs? What should we do to get more women interested in becoming entrepreneurs in Spain?

We will also joined at the second roundtable discussion by junior and senior entrepreneurs. What advantages are there in starting up on your own sooner or later in life? What can we do better to encourage an enterprising spirit from the beginning? What advantages and difficulties are involved in starting up on your own once you’re in your forties?

Start Up Spain IV

Start-Up-Spain III: September 26, 2012

This is the third Start Up Spain conference and brought together leaders who have created start-ups in the United States and have the support of foreign venture capital firms (first panel). Two questions were asked of entrepreneurs and investors: Why did you get together? And what lessons can you share with the Spanish to encourage start-ups and entrepreneurial initiatives?
  
Spanish entrepreneurs who have raised capital in the United States and Spain share their experiences (second panel). These entrepreneurs answer two questions: What are the differences between the two countries with regard to fundraising? And what can we do in Spain to grow this ecosystem?


Start Up Spain III

Start-Up-Spain II: April 23, 2012

This session discusses:

· Venture capital investment in digital technology is less than €1 per capita – when it more than $140 per capita in Israel and $70 in the US.
· Despite the difficulties, there is a large pool of entrepreneurial talent in Spain, as well as active investors, including some foreign investors.
· These foreign investors took the platform to explain why they invest in Spain.
· How to attract more investors?
· The session focuses on these two questions, with an open discussion format that encourages interaction.
