Charla con Carlos Blanco sobre el ecosistema emprendedor

In an always changing entrepreneurial ecosystem, talent flows where validated and money-backed projects are. Spain is no different; despite the immense talent pool we have, most local startups seem not to grow further after raising a Round A. That's what Founder & Chairman Carlos Blanco has been working on at Nuclio, a venture builder which drives and builds startups from business ideas validated in other markets, helping startups surpass that threshold and focusing on validating the business model in our market.

Come and learn with us from one of the best in the industry. He will talk about his personal experience as an investor and serial entrepreneur, as well as about Nuclio's startup building model and the future of the entire ecosystem.
