Hello guys! This weekend we're holding the first 2018 edition of the EIT Alumni Startup Days

It's actually a whole new concept, we're working on solving a soci(et)al challenge together with a company and lots of organizations! Who's joining me, Laura Perez, Leon Haupt, Claudio Geyken and David Ulrich Ziegler?

 

Here the challenge:

 

INCUBATING A NEW INNOVATION DISTRICT IN BARCELONA:

THE RECOVERY OF THE LITTORAL FRONT BETWEEN BADALONA PORT AND THE BESÒS RIVER


 

Let’s imagine that the littoral front between Badalona Port and The Besòs River becomes over the next 15 years a new innovation hotspot on the Barcelona metropolitan map…. This would surely create great entrepreneurial opportunities!

 

Inquire: what else is moving in the area and what's new?

Think: who are investors interested in the area?

Strategize: what are the needs and challenges and how could you provide solutions?

Who could become a client, industry partner, investor and sponsors for your entrepreneurial project?

 

Help us solve this challenge!

Register now for the EIT Alumni Startup Days 2018 - Barcelona!
