busuu.com at the Entrepreneur day in Madrid


Yesterday I was invited to give a speech at the “Día del Emprendedor” (Day of the Entrepreneur), an event organized by the City of Madrid at the campus of the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos

The target audience of this event was mainly students interested in founding their own company. There were several workshops from Marketing to Financing and I was invited to give some insights about our start-up experience with busuu.com.

In the same workshop, my friend Maini Spenger, also Austrian, Alumni of Instituto de Empresa and CEO of Másmovil, a new mobile operator in Spain, talked as well about his life as an entrepreneur here in this country.

For me it was very interesting to see how many young people are thinking about founding their own company. Instead of joining the “safe harbour” of large corporations, I got the impression that there is a certain “entrepreneurial spirit” within the upcoming Spanish generation. So I really hope that I have motivated some of the audience, to start their own venture one day!
