IMPROVING THE ECOSYSTEM TO CREATE GREATER OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUCCESS
We have some of the brightest people living in Spain. However, a great portion of this talent is lost as individuals go abroad to search for better professional career opportunities If we want Spain to regain its productive capacity, everyone must cooperate to drive growth and innovation.
By 2018, startups in Europe will employ almost 5 million people and will generate 63 million € in profits
SMEs represent more than 65% of Spanish GDP
89% of employment in Spain is generated by companies of 20 or less employees
If we want Spain to regain its productive capacity, we need to facilitate the creation and consolidations of innovative companies that can offer new jobs. We have the motivation and necessary tools to do it, but we need to remove the existing barriers and unite our efforts to improve the possibilities for success from within the ecosystem. The solution doesn't come from one individual or group, all stakeholders in the ecosystem need to work together.
We need to overcome the difficulties that prevent us from materializing the startup potential that exists in Spain that has grown significantly in the last couple of years.
We need more access to capital to drive up the reinvestment of profits and to attract foreign investments and increase access to crowdfunding.
We need a stable and effective legal framework to facilitate the creation, management and closing of companies.
