The new look of the Madrid campus

A key difference in the reopening of the Madrid campus is that the space is now only open to district members and partners. Spaces that were once open to the public before the pandemic are now limited to on-campus startups that have completed an in-depth training program.

The decision was driven by the rapid growth of Madrid’s startup community, which is home to around 100 startups. This will allow alumni to maximize existing opportunities to take their skills and business to the next level.

Entrepreneurs will have more opportunities to grow through expert guidance and training. Some product specialists will be moving their offices to Cams Madrid to provide more personalized instruction. Training events will also be provided, as well as customized instruction on Google products such as Google Cloud or Google Ads. These Startup School sessions should not be limited to the startups that reside, but will also be open to a wider audience.

First in-person program to promote women as leaders

The first project of Google for Startup Campus Madrid will be the Women Founders Academy, which aims to promote women’s leadership. This is a three-month leadership and development program for female founders designed to help women nurture leadership skills in their growing businesses and strengthen their valuable connections in this network.

In this program, female founders will be able to participate in workshops and one-on-one coaching with industry experts and Google consultants to help them overcome challenges and take their businesses to the next level. The program will begin on March 21, and 11 female founders have been selected so far.

Support for social innovation, Google’s philanthropic arm, will support Ashoka to make social entrepreneurship more inclusive, diverse and accessible in Spain. The project aims to address geographic, socioeconomic, gender and generational gaps in social entrepreneurship by creating three social innovation labs. also supports INCO, an international non-profit organization that provides funding and mentoring to social entrepreneurs from underprivileged communities in Spain.

These were made possible with the support of and the Social Innovation Fund, which helped secure €2.5 million to support organizations advocating for social innovation in Spain.
