The Spanish Crowdfunding association

The Spanish Crowdfunding association is an independent nonprofit association representing platforms and professionals of the crowdfunding industry in Spain.

We know that crowdfunding is the new trend of collective financing for the world of entrepreneurship, cultural and social, which has taken off in Spain the past few years. It has given the emergence of new platforms of crowdfunding or microfinance.

The main objectives of this association are :

  1. Promote crowdfunding as a valuable and viable way for companies, projects or undertakings Spanish in order to raise funds for their economic viability.
  2. Be the voice of all crowdfunding platforms and crowdfunding professional services in Spain in all its various forms (grants, loans, equity and rewards) with the media and policy makers to influence and provide a single message to all Spanish society.
  3. Post a code of practice to be adopted by all platforms and crowdfunding professionals to protect their participants (sponsors and investors).

You can find more information on the website of the Association www.spaincrowdfund.org.
You can request an invitation to the Linkedin group “Spanish Association of Crowdfunding“.

In coming days the admission process as full partners will be anounced.

Sinergiaycredito also fundraises for the project

Sinergiaycrédito is an online tech platform which aims to foster social and local economy as well as development cooperation, solidarity and human ethics.

To ensure these goals the platform generates synergies when using its own technology based in trades between users. The trades don’t have to be between same users or at the same time. The system balances all the offers and bids allowing a fairer trade.

Also, Sienrgiaycrédito, integrates social and cooperation projects in the trades. For each 10€ given to a social cause, the user gets a reward of 200€ in credits to spent in trades within the platform.

Here, is where the relationship between Worldcoo and Sinergiaycrédito takes place. The project “Construction of a fenced area for crops” is now listed also inside the Sinergiaycrédito’s platform allowing users to fundraise it.

We expect that this collaboration helps the project in its funding needs and allows Fundació Campaner NGO to bring the needed help to the beneficiaries of Diffa.

Worldcoo founders share experiences to more than a hundred students from KIC InnoEnergy Masters programs

Worldcoo’s founders, Aureli Bou and Sergi Figueres, shared their experiences on entrepreneurship last week, in the Networking Day, an event promoted by one of their principal partners, KIC InnoEnergy.

More than a hundred students from different KIC InnoEnergy Masters programs (RENE, MIE, SELECT & Clean Coal) attended the Networking Day Event, held on last Wednesday, February 6th, at CC Iberia Incubator and EsadeCreapolis venues in Sant Cugat. The objective of the activity was to present to the students the KIC InnoEnergy’s mission and business objectives, to create networks between students from technical and management Master programmes, so as to create joint work on the Master thesis, and to develop the added value activities of the students in research and business creation. It has been the first time that students from 4 different KIC InnoEnergy MSc programmes meet together.

The opening speech was performed by KIC InnoEnergy CEO, Diego Pavia, who spoke to the students about the main objectives of the masters, the opportunities they will find along the way and what was expected from them as participants. Afterwards, Aureli Bou and Sergi Figueres, Worldcoo’s founders, shared their experiences on how creating and sustaining a new business with KIC’s support was like.

In the second part of the meeting, the students from RENE, SELECT and Clean Coal visited KIC’s incubator facilities, as well as a sustainable house built by the start-up Noem and located at the entrance of the EsadeCreapolis building. In addition, MIE and RENE students doing the MSc participated in a networking session for the cooperation of their MSc thesis work, structured as a three-minute pitch made by the students. This activity was followed by the session’s wrap up.
