Circular Talent

This free programme works on the pre-acceleration of startups, promoting ideas and projects focused on the circular economy and sustainability. The goal is simple: to turn projects into companies.

Circular Talent is supported by the Departament d’Empresa i Coneixement de la Generalitat de Catalunya within the framework of Catalunya Emprèn and co-financed by the European Social Fund.

More than a decade promoting entrepreneurship

When the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Barcelona was still in its infancy, Esade Creapolis decided to offer its knowledge to boost the growth of emerging projects based on differentiating technologies. To this end, innovative concepts such as lean startup, blue ocean strategy and exponential organisations were applied.

As a park linked to a business school, Esade Creapolis provides the knowledge of professors, researchers and mentors linked to Esade, expanding the training of entrepreneurs in complementary aspects.
