Initiatives to promote entrepreneurship are always welcome, and more if they come from projects such as fresh and exciting as the Startup Grind Barcelona. The Startup Grind Barcelona is part of a global community of start-ups (Startup Grind) with local offices in over 80 countries worldwide.
Startup Grind Barcelona objectives are to promote, inspire and connect start-ups entrepreneurs. To do so, every month they organize a meeting with a person reference in the field of new technologies and innovation. The meeting avoids the classic scheme of speakers and attendees, and opts for a more informal format divided into three parts:
1. Community hour: 10-minute keynote about interesting topics and an open mic where everybody is invited to ask on stage what he needs for his project during 60 seconds.
2. Fireside chat: speaker is interviewed during 40 minutes, followed by a 20-minutes questions & answers section.
3. Networking: catering & beverages, networking with attendees and the speaker.
The next guest (November 30, 2015 / 6:30 PM, at the Mobile World Centre) is Simon Lee, the company Incubio, a start-up incubator in Barcelonafocused on early stage projects that use Big Data technologies.
Admission to the event is open to all and the ticketincludes normally extra stuff, such as catering, beverages and other swag.
