Dear tech entrepreneur,

How fast is the European ecosystem growing? GP Bullhound just assured that Europe will have its first Titan in 2021, as Spotify and Ayden will be the first startups reaching a $50.000M valuation. If you are more into the Chinese market, these are some of the tech trends to watch in 2019.

Last week we published an interview with Oriol Marimon, eCooltra’s CEO to talk about mobility and the topic can’t be more relevant. It has been confirmed that Bird is buying Scoot and ACCIONA has entered the business with 1.200 motorbikes only in Barcelona. Oh, and you can suggest to us who else to bring to the podcast here!

And two extra tips. The madri+d foundation and F. Iniciativas have released a quick summary of financial resources for startups and if you are more interested in finding a job at a game-changing startup, you can take a look at our open positions!
