The objective of the Advisory Board is to help the Association as a strategic reference globally (and the Ecosystem itself and its respective Agents).

  • Observatory

    Its objective is to detect innovations, trends and evolutions, both technological and legal or market, that may be occurring in the world and of which the Ecosystem of Madrid (and of Spain in general) needs to be aware.

  • Think Tank

    TankThis aims to anticipate innovations, trends and evolutions, both technological and legal or market, in order to offer a competitive advantage to the Ecosystem of Madrid (and Spain in general).

  • Public affairs (National and European)

    Aims to enforce the interests of the Ecosystem of Madrid (and of Spain in general) before the Spanish and European AAPPs.

The Advisory Board works under a scheme of Work Committees, which are built around those Areas of Interest for the Startup Ecosystem of Madrid (and Spain, Europe and the 22 countries we have narrow links though our internactional advisory board). These Working Committees are usually led by a tractor element, which is designated by its institutional weight. Around this tractor element are articulated, under schemes of collaborative work, other Agents of the Ecosystem related to the Scope of Interest in question. As results of the various Working Committees of the Advisory Board, the following can be mentioned:

  • Development of Strategic Plans Actuation

    for the Ecosystem of Madrid (and of Spain in general) and for the various Sectors represented in it.

  • Development of White Papers

    — On good sector practices, of other Ecosystems, etc.
    — More (to be developed together with the various associations: sectorial, partners, etc.
