For years Barcelona is growing on issues of digital entrepreneurship. In 2012 the Ecommerce & Tech Barcelona was born, a cluster renamed Barcelona Tech City that is now achieving its first great success: the opening of the headquarters, that will welcome up to fifty companies and an activities centre.

The idea of Tech City Bcn is that this « house of entrepreneurs » of Barcelona will be operational before the celebration of the upcoming Mobile World Congress (late February 2016). And if anything goes wrong it will be located in Palau de Mar. It is a landmark building, built in 1881 as a port warehouse, and in recent years, until 2012, had housed the Department of Social Welfare. There are the Catalonia’s History Museum and several catering establishments. Also there are several technological companies such as: Holaluz, Tiendeo, Letgo, and PGI Engineering-BIS Structures.

The « house of entrepreneurs » is intended as additional initiative to promote entrepreneurship, as Barcelona Activa.
