In recent years #Barcelona has become a leading city in the so-called digital economy. It is considered the most important city in southern Europe for startup creation.

Startups Heatmap affirms that the city of Barcelona is the third by order of preference to start a business.

The city has become a priority destination for foreign multinationals, especially those linked to the technological field.

Likewise, Barcelona is a hotbed of small, local and international Startups that are looking for their place in the market. These end up generating thousands of new jobs, most of them of great technological value.

Barcelona must undoubtedly follow this path which will lead it to be the cosmopolitan modern city it has always been.

Here are some concrete examples to certify these positive statements about our city.


Mobile World Congress (MWC)

In 2019, it is expected to exceed 107,000 attendees and generate an economic impact of €473 million and 13,900 temporary jobs.
The main technological multinationals have already confirmed their attendance: Facebook, Google, Huawei, LG, Sony, Samsung…

This congress generates an important impact on the city’s start-up ecosystem. This is due to the fact that during the conference Barcelona becomes the world reference for the Tech industry.


Barcelona Tech City / Pier 01

Barcelona Tech City is a project promoted by local entrepreneurs which is currently made up of more than 800 companies.

In the Pier 01 building a tech company ecosystem has been achieved. This brings an enormous potential to all tech companies.

It is a clear example of the dynamism of the city of Barcelona and how entrepreneurs strongly bet on Barcelona.



The social media giant, with more than 1 billion users worldwide, will install a content control space in Glòries Tower with more than 500 quality jobs.

To a lesser extent, from the Cat Real Estate Group we are also committed to the entrepreneurship and promotion of the creation of Startups in the city of Barcelona.

With this objective two years ago we created the incubator focused on Real Estate Startsups Cat Real Estate #Proptech.

The purpose of Cat Real Estate Proptech is to provide coverage and support to new real estate business models with a technological base in its early stages of life (pre-seed or seed phase).

We currently have 4 incubated Startups: Yourhoming, Melibero, Rentando and Cat Real Estate Relocation.

We are convinced as well as the multinationals mentioned above that Barcelona has become a world leader in the implementation and development of Startups.
