Barcelona, 16th June 2020

Looking to identify the most outstanding entrepreneurs across Spain, the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) will be hosting the second edition of the GREAT Entrepreneur Games in Barcelona on 16th June 2020. 

 

The GREAT Entrepreneur Games Barcelona is a giant pitching competition – with a difference. It is a real time, simulated investment game where entrepreneurs from tech start-ups or scale ups pitch to investors and other entrepreneurs taking part in the virtual funding.

 

The game is a mix of pitching and networking alongside managed panel discussions and presentations. It attempts to mimic the feel of the entrepreneurial ecosystem and the challenges that entrepreneurs face.

 

The format is relatively simple and comprises of two groups - the entrepreneurs and the investors. Each entrepreneur’s company is profiled on the game’s bespoke app (available on iOS and Android) and every investor is given a virtual £1 million on the app to invest in their favourite start-up or scale-up entrepreneur during the day’s sessions. The three entrepreneurs with the most virtual money invested into their projects will be the champions. They will be awarded a personalized programme in London of meetings and activities to boost their expansion to the UK.

 

The main aim of the event is to help entrepreneurs improve their pitching skills as well as provide mentoring and best practice presentations from UK and Spain experts. The half-day event will take place in Barcelona city centre at InGracia Events.
