Friends, Tetuanees, Countrymen! Lend me your ears!
At the beginning of February we launched the first edition of Startup Spain Angel School, with a lot of buzz on the media. Our goal was to brain-wash them wallet-holders and get them all crazy about investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs in Spain. And it worked! But you know how this things work. Lots of cool startups are looking for funds, so we want to help prepare more Business Angels to support them! Therefore we’re launching a 2nd edition of Startup Spain Angel School, the one day bootcamp for potential angel investors to learn how to squander their fortunes by getting into internet startups.
Now seriously. Today, none can deny we’re living in a digital revolution. This is the time to build the future standards of information and communication technologies. And either we make an all-in now, or we’re going to be dropped behind for ages.
The Tetuan Valley Crew has been promoting entrepreneurship, investing and facilitating venture capital deal over the past 4 years, launching the first pre-accelerator program and the first Pan-European accelerator. We’re absolutely committed with relaunching Spain and we’re on a quest of Death or Glory for it. And we’re not alone, an awesome vibrant entrepreneurial community stands behind us, most of the top investors in Spain do aswel, and last but not least we have affiliated with Kauffman Foundation (ultimate global organization in entrepreneurship research and promotion) as part of their Global Partner Network.
Our colleagues at Madrid Emprende have decided to back us in this project, hosting it in their awesome facilities at Madrid International Lab.
The first edition was a blockbuster. 65+ participants, top-notch guest speakers and startups. But the 2nd… it’s gonna be even cooler. Ran by the Tetuan Valley Squad Team, it will offer precious insights into the process of investing in internet startups to investors throughout Spain.
