Starting a company is solitary and challenging. Working with other people going through the same challenges makes a huge difference. Founders who’ve gone through our programs tell us that the belonging to a community is extremely valuable. As an african proverb says “To educate a child is needed the whole tribe”.
We believe startups learn more when they work side by side. Many founders say that working with peers maintains self-motivation, fosters synergies and increases productivity. We offer spacious, bright and inspiring spaces in an environment like Sant Cugat (Barcelona), with a large business activity.
We built an important network, startups build relationships and partnerships that wouldn’t be possible at their size without an ecosystem like ours. Need an intro to a customer? Early access to a new platform feature? A test with in a real enviroment? Stuck at the border? We’re here to help you.

English is our “lingua franca” and we look for founders aimed to play in global markets. Our mentors’ll prepare you for the international arena and our ambassadors’ll guide you in different markets.
