New Google campus to open in Madrid

GOOGLE is launching an entrepreneur ‘campus’ in Madrid, following successful launches in London and Tel Aviv.

The ‘campuses’ are aimed at entrepreneurs looking for informal office spaces to house their start-up projects and careers.

With no charge for participation, the offices include working areas, the latest devices and teaching from experienced mentors and business leaders.

“We have seen the booming entrepreneurial community in Spain and are excited to join the local community in making it even stronger,” said a spokesperson for Google.

“Our hope is that Campus Madrid will supercharge tech entrepreneurs, strengthen the start-up ecosystem and encourage even more innovation in Spain, Europe and beyond.”

The launch of the London campus created more than 570 jobs last year, according to Google, and the company is looking to recreate this success in Spain.

South Korea, Poland and Brazil have also recently been announced as other future locations.
