The 22@ district

Barcelona has a thriving internet startup and web community, including the technological and innovation 22@ district in the old industrial area of the city near Poble Nou. This area of Barcelona is also known as ‘Districte de la innovació’ or innovation district.

Another name for this area of Barcelona, partly due to all the old brick chimneys towering high above the old industrial warehouses and factories, is the ‘Catalan Manchester’.

The internet startup and web community in Barcelona continues to be a force to be reckoned with, and is now home to some of Europe’s hottest startups.

Here are just some of the networking groups, events, entrepreneurship centres and service providers, that we have found invaluable and you might too:
