Shenzhen Spain – Startup Mixer Event
Coming from a rich history of culture, art and innovation, Barcelona now ranks as one of the top-5 European cities in the major categories of start-up rankings (leading hub, capital investments, the favourite hub for founders, number of a transaction) as an optimal destination for Chinese start-ups starting their European adventure.
The city is particularly rich in startups in the white-hot smart cities sector, as well as gaming, biotech, and pharma, largely thanks to the many large life sciences companies that already call Barcelona home.
Now, they are bringing their most fresh and uprising startups and core people in startup institutes to Shenzhen, a no doubt driving power of groundbreaking innovation and entrepreneurship in China, and who is eager to collapse with a wide range of innovative thoughts and minds.
