Barcelona, a city of contrasts
We call Barcelona our home. The sunny seaside city seamlessly blends the modern with the traditional, and over the centuries it has influenced writers, artists, architects, and innovators alike.
Today it is a burgeoning startup hub with an engaged and enthusiastic community of entrepreneurs.
Proudly hosting the world-famous Mobile World Congress each year in February, Barcelona is a magnet for people who love technology and creativity, but at the same time enjoy a free and relaxed lifestyle and the benefits of being in a beautiful, historic place. This conflation of qualities is fostered by the wonderful Catalan culture and it’s not uncommon find ultra-modern coworking spaces, full of developers and tech entrepreneurs, nestled among Roman columns and winding gothic streets.
