Esther Molina will moderate a table with Marta Caparros (founder and CEO of YouTOOProject), Emily Gonzalez-Cebrian, Froged, and Patricia Lopez from MyHixel. Tickets can still be purchased through the Alhambra Venture website.
Alhambra Venture was born out of a need that IDEAL confirmed. There were no connecting links between startups, alternative financing sources, and there was no way to connect them. The majority of Andalusian startup founders left the community in order to get financing. Consequently, the project went overseas many times.
It is a national benchmark and hundreds of applicants from all parts of the country have applied. Alhambra Venture ensures that startups don't have to leave Andalusia and has attracted potential talent to the region.
