Last Friday (May 28), we were amongst five Spanish entrepreuneurs invited to a roundtable with the Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Businses Affairs, Mr. Jose W. Fernandez hosted by the American Embassy in Madrid. This event took place in the contex of the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship of the U.S. government.
During this meeting each guest presented their company and shred their experience of entrepreneurship in Spain. This gave rise to a very interesting discussion including issues such as the management of intellectual property in Spain, accessibility to US-based funding bodies and investors and the Spanish labour market. The outcome of this discussion was the creation of a communication channel between Spanish entrepreneurs and the US through the American Embassy in Madrid.
