Barcelona Day~Barcelona’s Innovation Ecosystem and its Business Promotion System~2017/09/27

The city of Barcelona is known for its beautiful townscapes. Since its local government, enterprises, and ventures are cooperatively generating a number of new business models, Barcelona has also become a showcase of field tests. According to the research by 2thinknow, Barcelona is one of the top innovation citiesTM. From its collected human, technical, and financial resources, the city is exhibiting significant economic growth. Accelerators from Barcelona first cite examples of actual field tests and acceleration startup functions. As a case study, presenters from Japan introduce local ventures invested by Japanese companies to explain Barcelona’s business opportunities and future prospectives.
