Barcelona | 5th June 2017 (Duration 4 Weeks)

In a similar vein to Berlin the startup scene in Barcelona has very much been driven by affordable living costs and the perfect work life balance. Barcelona also provides a weatlh of bright minds with numerous local universities that supply a fresh flow of highly qualified labour in the city with low overheads (comparatively low minimum salary).  The increased global interest in Barcelona is also due to it being a key gateway between Europe and America, fuelling an increased international work force inhabiting some of the coolest work spaces in Europe.
