Spain and the ‘The State of European Tech 2016’

- September 21, 2016

Hey there! Remember me? I haven’t forgotten about Novobrief, it’s just that the first few weeks at K Fund have been pretty hectic. As a journalist, at times you might think you know a lot about the venture business, but once you’re in the inside you realize you’re pretty much clueless about a ton of things. At least that’s my case.

Anyway, my idea is to continue to publish over here on a weekly basis. I miss it. I really do. I obviously won’t be able to do it in the same way as before, because these days I have access to a lot of confidential information that could definitely affect my writing. So yeah, I won’t be breaking any stories or criticising startups and investors alike. However, I do think there’s a lot of stuff I can write about, including the first steps in my investment career. But I’ll leave that for another day.

This evening I’d like to tell you about ‘The State of European Tech 2016‘ a report that a bunch of guys and companies I really appreciate are currently putting together.

Atomico and Slush are behind it, and if you haven’t checked their 2015 edition, you should. My beloved and Dealroom are also pitching in and helping with the report and analysis, so you can be sure that it’s going to be as good as last year’s and probably even better.

However, very few Spanish entrepreneurs and investors have completed the survey. I have done it -but I’m not representative of anything in this case- and it only takes 5 minutes to do it.

If I may, I’d like to encourage my Spanish colleagues to go ahead and complete the survey, because it will help Atomico and the rest of the guys and it will allow them to have a better idea of what’s going on in Spain and the potential of the country’s tech ecosystem. Would you, please?

(Oh, and it’s powered by Barcelona-based Typeform, which has just been chosen by Accel Partners as one of Europe’s top-100 SaaS companies.)
