On 16 July the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya will host the I Catalunya Emprèn Congress, a meeting point for thousands of entrepreneurs seeking financing, businesspeople looking for solutions to their innovation challenges and investors operating both in Spain and abroad.
The Congress is organised by the Catalan Government and its first part is to feature a Corporate Venturing session. The aim of the session is to drive open innovation in large and medium enterprises through participation in the business projects of entrepreneurs, start-ups, TBCs and SMEs that meet their innovation challenges.
The Corporate Venturing session will be followed by the Investment Forum. A total of 21 projects from a range of fields (life and health sciences, ICT and other technologies) will have the chance to gain exposure among investors to raise financing. Congress attendees will be able to vote for the best projects.
