The Entrepreneur's Lounge is evolving into the leading platform and the best meeting point, in terms of the internationalisation of companies, their ways of financing and the possibilities of creating new businesses. All this will give special importance to the mechanisms and channels of growth and business evolution as well as innovation.
In order to carry out the objectives, BizBarcelona has scheduled conferences, debates in round tables and all kinds of meetings between the different professional and business agents. This is the case of investors, advisors, and entrepreneurs, etc.
In addition to the companies and their managers, representatives of insurance companies, public institutions, banks and financial companies as well as experts in franchising and social networks will attend these meetings
BIZEXPORTA and the Markets
This area, managed by CaixaBank and the Chamber of Commerce of Barcelona, was created to advise professionals on export activity. In addition, two areas are strengthened: the Labour Market, in which candidates who wish to do so can submit their application to companies and a Financing Market, which will have agents from banks and financial institutions, private investors and professionals from funding through crowdfunding.
The topic of innovation and technological transformation is discussed in the Barcelona Digital City Plan, which was created with the aim of promoting and enhancing the digital fabric of Barcelona, the entrepreneurship in cutting-edge technologies in sectors such as logistics and distribution channels, opportunities in digital business, Social Media, and digital marketing in mobile technology, among other objectives.
In Bizfranquicias, there will be a space offered to business professionals so they can reveal their business ideas.
