‘Best in Gran Canaria’ and EIT Digital Alumni gather 40 digital entrepreneurs to showcase the opportunities that Gran Canaria offers


The Economic Promotion Society of Gran Canaria (SPEGC in its Spanish acronym), through the ‘Best in Gran Canaria’ initiative, co-hosted a special Gran Canaria-themed meet-up during the yearly the EIT Digital Alumni Co-living 2022. The professional event brought together 40 digital entrepreneurs on Tuesday the 22nd of March.

The event was a new opportunity to broaden information about digital entrepreneurship in the Canary Islands and to continue to promote Gran Canaria as a preferred destination for start-ups and remote workers.

EIT Digital Alumni Co-living 2022 consisted on a four-week retreat in the Canary Islands and the side-activities included a variety of events such as networking meetings, talks and presentations. The ‘Gran Canaria Night’ was aimed at providing information about ongoing and prospected business opportunities, including taxation and dedicated financing streams, but it was also dedicated to facilitate a shared space for dialogue and inspiration to members of EIT Digital Alumni that will soon become start-up founders.

SPEGC plays a significant role in supporting any technological venture that foresees Gran Canaria as their R&D and Operations base, providing local intelligence, technical consultancy services, soft finance, offices and recruitment support.
