Anyways, going back to Spain and Madrid in particular, we have one hell of a week! FICOD is here and we’ll have some amazing speakers coming in, including Tim O’Reilly, Gary Vaynerchuck or our beloved co-founder Chris McCann. :D So definitely check it out! Here we go!
What’s Going on in the Madrid Startup Community
When: Tues Nov 22, 9:00am – Thur Nov 24
Where: Palacio de Congresos, Madrid
Definitely the must-go event of the week. Literally everybody will attend, ranging from investors to all of the most rperesentative entrepreneurs from Spain and several cool US friends (Tim O’Reilly, Gary Vaynerchuck, Chris McCann, etc.).
Inspirational 2011 (Spanish/English)
When: Wed Nov 23, 8:30am
Where: Palacio Duques de Pastrana, Madrid
The only event dedicated entirely to advertising and digital communication in Spain, there are some interesting talks here too. They’re a little unlike because they fight against FICOD for the timeslot but some impressive speakers here.
Founder Meet (FICOD) (Spanish)
When: Thur Nov 24, 11:00am – 1:00pm
Where: Palacio de Congresos,Madrid
While inside FICOD, I wanted to mark this event because I think it’s badly needed. Founder Meet is a speed dating event between founders so that you can find a co-founder or partner to help you with your project. It’s a very neat idea that I’m sure is going to be helpful to plenty of people.
iWeekend Universidad Madrid (Spanish)
When: Fri Nov 25, 12:00am
Where: Edificio Telefónica, Calle Gran Vía 28, Madrid
iWeekend comes back this next weekend! With a target of capturing the imagination of our students, I’m sure they’ll make a splash and uncover some entrepreneurs within the students.
