After coming very close in its most recent attempt to become an Olympic capital, Madrid has decided to add a bit of “entrepreneurial innovation” to its bid to host the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, and 3 of Area 31´s Alumni Startup Incubator teams will be part of the process!
More specifically, Madrid’s City Hall, through its network “Madrid Emprende”, is supporting the program “2020 for 2020 Startup Madrid”. One of the main objectives of this program is to support high-potential entrepreneurs that can help Madrid to become even more international by realizing their ideas while creating social impact through their businesses.
On 12 April 2013, the evaluation committee for “2020 for 2020 Startup Madrid” sorted through 150 projects to selected 12 winners. A full 25% of the winners are teams from Area 31’s Alumni Startup Incubator. Congratulations to camare.ro, Pathfinder and Top Around!
We are sure that these are just the first of what will likely be many future victories and celebrations of IE’s entrepreneurial talent!
