A new call for proposals for the program Rising Startup Spain by ICEX-Invest in Spain was opened last 17 August. This initiative allows international or non-resident Spanish entrepreneurs to set up their startup in Spain.
For the last few years Spain’s entrepreneurship has been growing fast and Spain is emerging as a destination of choice for an increasing number of entrepreneurs ready to innovate and collaborate in a most conducive environment.
First-class universities, topnotch business schools, highly skilled human capital and substantial capital funding, public and private, create the right conditions for your start up to grow.
The program offers:
- Free workspace in Madrid and Barcelona, two hotspots for startups.
- Prize money of €10.000 to cover initial startup expenses.
- Easier access to Visa and Residence permits.
- Instrumental mentoring to help you connect with potential investors.
Submission of applications: from August 17 to September 30, 2016
