Description / Objectives
Technology has changed the economic environment, and technological and digital entrepreneurship has become a new hub of activity. Barcelona City Council, with Barcelona Activa as its main ally, contributes to the development of the city's technological economy and digital ecosystem by offering services, programmes, activities and facilities that are part of its current portfolio and by creating new ad hoc projects that will put Barcelona on the map of cities that are major players in the technological and digital area.
Incubation and advice space
Barcelona Activa's MediaTIC Incubator is a good example of public leadership in supporting digital entrepreneurship. This welcoming space specialised in businesses with high technological impact houses 20 businesses in 1,400 m2. These businesses work in artificial intelligence, the internet of things (IoT), robotics, space technology and nanotechnology.
The main aim of implementing this new incubator, which complements Barcelona Activa's network of other incubators, is to promote and support the creation and growth of companies with high technological impact, that contribute to economic development and to generating qualified jobs.
