Notes from a Start-up summit, day 1/2 (Madrid)
On the 7th-8th of June, the Spain Startup & Investor Summit took place in Madrid, organised by http://spain-startup.com/. A great number of impressive start-ups took the opportunity to present themselves to prospective investors, and a video was made of each day. One understandable development is that many of the start-ups are aiming at an international market from the start - indeed some of the founders were from other countries. Here I will list the first day start-ups, and their starting time on the video, so you may go straight to the presentation you wish (it's a very long video on both days). There are also great debates by existing entrepreneurs on the day's video.
