Madrid: The Fastest Growing European Tech Hub

Huboo is proud to be operating in Madrid, one of the most-innovative cities in Europe. This historic city bursts with innovative activity while still enjoying the benefits of a relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere where ski resorts are just an hour’s drive away.

Although Madrid has not historically been considered a major European tech hub, in recent years the Spanish capital has carved out a significant place for itself as one of the key European places for tech. One of the reasons for this change is the significant investment Madrid-based start-ups receive for their creative endeavours. A total of €342 million was invested in Madrid during 2021 alone.

Many investors are attracted to Madrid as an alternative to the long-established leading tech cities of Europe, as the city is not nearly as expensive as these other locations like Paris and Berlin.

Madrid spawns thousands of entrepreneurs every year, all with the same drive and ambition as their European counterparts. Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, has even referred to his nation as a “country of entrepreneurs.”

This success is being noticed by leading global corporations. Amazon recently selected Madrid as the destination for its Southern European tech hub, and Google has opened one of its three European Innovation Campuses in the city.

Now home to over 1,200 tech start-ups, Madrid is also regarded as a key location thanks to it sharing tech connections with other Spanish cities, most importantly Barcelona; the city regarded as Spain’s other main place for modern tech development. Unlike other European countries which concentrate their tech power almost exclusively in the capital city, Spain instead shares its focus across both these locations to prevent competition between them, making Madrid a wise choice of location for investors looking to spread their funds between different Spanish regions.
